Directors Cup Challenge Committee
Coordinates the “Directors Cup Challenge” held at The Union League Golf Club at Torresdale in Northeast Philadelphia. So goes the story, the Greater Northeast Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce was founded on the greens of the old course, designed by the legendary Donald James Ross of Scotland. A group of concerned businessmen from Frankford wanted a stronger voice on behalf of local commerce, and in 1922 they signed the charter creating the GNPCC. The committee organizes and promotes the event, solicits prize donations, sells tickets, and identifies ways to make the annual outing fun and entertaining.

Government Affairs Committee
Monitors government’s ongoing work at the city, state, and federal levels, primarily as it relates to issues and events impacting our member businesses. The committee has been an integral part of the GNPCC since 1922 in helping the organization stay abreast of current developments, maintain professional relationships with elected officials and area leaders, and monitor legislation for possible Board action. The committee regularly hosts speakers for breakfasts, luncheons, or workshops that provide a personal forum for members’ interaction.
Ensures that the organization is on the front line of the latest in communications and marketing technology through its Web site, online messaging, advertising vehicles, and promotional materials. The committee’s sphere of responsibility spreads across the organization as it optimizes multiple platforms in an effort to reach the maximum audience. As technology changes, the committee’s task is to stay current and utilize print media, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and a new interactive Web site to inform members and the public about the exciting agenda we have planned for them.
