Through the BABC, members have the opportunity to develop valuable business contacts within the British American community and to exchange ideas and information with a cross section of business, trade and governmental interests.
Recognizing the potential benefits that a larger, more financially stable airline could have on both national and regional economies, American Airlines and US Airways joined forces in late 2013 to form the American Airlines Group (American). Although it has been just under a year since the merger became official, the upside – especially in greater Philadelphia – is already clear: consumers of all types now enjoy improved air travel options. The stronger airline has helped create a stronger economy, and more capacity has allowed American to make an even bigger economic impact on the region’s communities and businesses.
On Thursday, February 5, 2015 the BABC hosted Theatre Night with member company Inis Nua, The Off-Broad Street Theatre at the First Baptist Church on Sansom Street in Philadelphia. The house was full, barely an empty seat in the 80 person theater, for the final preview of the US premier of the Scottish show, Long Live the Little Knife. Howard Silverstone, BABC Board President welcomed attendees and introduced Tom Reing, Founder and Artistic Director of Inis Nua Theatre.
