Chamber Receptions

The Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce holds three signature legislative receptions throughout the year with stakeholders and regional policy makers to help strengthen relationships between our region’s business community and elected officials and to celebrate our shared accomplishments. The receptions, which take place in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg (in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia) and Washington, D.C., are always well attended.
