What a year it’s been! As we pause and reflect on the past year, we are overwhelmed with gratitude for our members, sponsors, partners and friends. A big THANK YOU for your support of our Chamber, our mission, and our strong network
across the US and Ireland!
2021 was another year of transition for us, we started the year strong with bi-weekly fully virtual programming, the highlight being our Global CEO Roundtable and Leadership Matters interview series. In June, we safely returned to in-person events with our first annual Irish Chamber Harp Outing. With great joy, we welcomed over 120 golfers and many more for our evening reception. This summer we hosted our first-ever Networking by the Sea happy hour at the Jersey Shore.
Another transition of the year was biding farewell to our wonderful supporters and friends Consul General Ciaran Madden and Deputy Consul General Eimer Friel, and welcoming their successors, Consul General Helena Nolan and Deputy Consul General Andrew Byrne.
We ended the year with a mix of in-person events in the Philadelphia area and virtual programming for our members in the Philadelphia area and our growing membership base across the US and Ireland.
We look forward to 2022 with optimism and excitement! Our signature event, the Ambassador’s Awards Luncheon, will be hosted on Friday, the 4th of March at the Union League of Philadelphia. As in past years, we are honored and humbled to recognize and celebrate our distinguished slate of honorees – Independent Container Line, the Port of Cork, and Penn Terminals PSA; John Furey, CEO of Imvax; and Joseph & Kathleen Heenan of The Friendly Sons & Daughters of St. Patrick. Registration is open now and early bird tickets are available.
Cheers to 22 years and counting!
