It is my honor to serve as the inaugural Chapter President for RELA Philadelphia alongside Vice President Bill Booth who also helped bring this chapter to fruition.


Since our kick-off event in May 2019 at Jasper’s Backyard, we have hosted several successful events with overwhelming support and interest from the local banking community. Our goal for the 2020/2021 membership year is to keep the momentum going and officially launch the Philadelphia chapter. This is collectively our chance to create the premiere commercial banking networking group in the Delaware Valley. Unfortunately, COVID-19 will prevent face-to-face networking events this year but we are working hard to deliver a virtual event in the Fall and Spring tailored to current events in the Philadelphia area.


Since we are the newest chapter within RELA, this is an opportunity for you to join in on the ground level and help cultivate this chapter for years to come. We welcome your membership and participation and we look forward to meeting you at the next RELA event.
