Letter from the President

Welcome to the Pennsylvania Society of Washington, D.C. I am honored to serve as the Society’s current President, and I invite you to join as a Member.

An annual individual membership is only $30.00 and joining or renewing a membership is easy to do online.

The Society is a non-profit, non-partisan organization open to anyone with an interest in the Keystone State. Our activities are managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, assisted by the generous financial support of our individual and corporate members. If you’re interested in becoming a corporate sponsor, please feel free to contact me or any of our Board members for more information. We would welcome your support!

With more than 500 members, we gather several times a year to celebrate our history, businesses, sports teams and even our politicians. I was born and raised outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and worked for former Congressman Phil English on Capitol Hill for over a decade. Being involved with the Pennsylvania State Society of Washington D.C. is a great way to stay in touch with and connect with the many Pennsylvanians living and working in the Washington D.C. area. We have an active membership that includes many Congressional staff from the Pennsylvania delegation, as well as other Pennsylvanians serving in federal agencies, the military, the business community and the non-profit sector. The Society serves as an excellent professional networking vehicle for making new acquaintances and spending quality time with old friends.

Whether you say hoagie or sub, pop or soda, I invite you to attend our events and become more involved with the Pennsylvania Society. I also look forward to hearing from you about how we can improve our events and involve the Society in other beneficial activities. Please join us to learn about our upcoming events!
