Chamber Receptions

The Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce, an affiliate of the Allegheny Conference, holds three signature legislative receptions each year with stakeholders and regional policymakers to strengthen relationships between our region’s business community and elected officials and to celebrate our shared accomplishments. These receptions occur in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg (in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia) and Washington, D.C. While the receptions are currently scheduled to be virtual events this year, we continue to monitor state and federal guidelines and restrictions (those imposed by venues and other authorities as well as those imposed by employers) with an eye to gather in-person when safe and appropriate to do so.

The dates for the 2021 GPCC receptions are as follows:

      • Harrisburg Reception – May 2021 – Virtual Event
      • Washington, D.C. Reception – TBD
      • Pittsburgh Reception – December 14, 2021
