A day on Capitol Hill with Greater Philadelphia’s business leaders

Engaging directly with elected officials on Capitol Hill is just one of many ways we encourage business leaders to create dialogue around issues that impact how our members do business across the region, nation, and globe.

On September 24, more than 50 Chamber members joined us on-the-ground in Washington, D.C. to share the message of our regional business growth and to raise issues for discussion that impact Greater Philadelphia’s economic growth. Throughout the day, congressional members gave briefings and took questions from attendees, touching on a variety of issues, including defense spending, budget & appropriations, energy development, health care, transportation & infrastructure, middle market growth, and education & workforce development.
