Join Chamber members and other business leaders in honoring our award recipients who have contributed to this thriving relationship. If last year’s sold-out crowd is any indication – hundreds of CACCGP members and guests will fill the Grand Ballroom at the Hyatt at the Bellevue in downtown Philadelphia in celebration of the Chamber honorees’ hard work and dedication.
