This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 2-24

Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce events

I've added a whole bunch of interesting events from the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce into the FunWithNetworking google calendar. I note that they tend to sell out (sorry, I mean, "to be sold out") by the time I would mention them in This Week in Philadelphia, so I suggest you try looking a couple of weeks ahead for these events, either in the FunWithNetworking calendar or, better yet, the Greater Philadelphia Chamber's excellent calendar.

On a related note, I try to post events that are only open to the general public. I figure that networking groups already have good communications channels in place to their current members, but that events that are open to a general audience need as much publicity as they can get. Occasionally, a members-only event will sneak onto the calendar (it is hard to tell from the descriptions sometimes, plus some of them are too fun to ignore). That means that an excellent event like the YPN's Unplugged with Michael Nutter won't be mentioned here because it is for members only. Join and grow.
