Greater Philadelphia Chapter

The Chapter is excited to introduce a fun new feature – Member Spotlights.  Each month, ACC Philadelphia hopes to publish a new Member Spotlight that features a Chapter member in a creative question-and-answer format.  ACC Philadelphia has more than 1500 members, and Member Spotlights are designed to help you get to know your fellow Chapter members better and enhance networking opportunities.  If you are interested in being the subject of a Spotlight or know someone who would make a good subject, please contact Joanne Ray at  We hope you enjoy this fun feature!
