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 actually founded on the greens of the old course, which was 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.

Membership and Outreach Committee
Actively promotes membership in the GNPCC through a comprehensive outreach program that emphasizes the values and benefits we offer. The committee engages in four levels of membership activity: Retention of current members, exploration of new member leads, discussion with former members about rejoining, and business development. While this committee is dedicated to the growth of our membership, it is also very interested in maintaining current members, and exploring why a member decided not to renew. All of this information is critical to our daily customer service goals, program design, and communications efforts.
