On November 7, 2023, Philadelphia residents will have an opportunity to vote for our City Council representatives. Elections will be held for all fourteen seats of the Council.

As these candidates, existing and new, advocate for their individual platforms, Global Philadelphia Association (GPA) invites them to join us for a special meet and greet, networking event. 

A free event for Global Philadelphia members to get to know the candidates for the upcoming city council nomination. Each candidate will be given the opportunity to complete a question and answer about the global direction they see for Philadelphia and how their campaign incorporates this. The goal of this event is to specifically engage with the international sector of the voters. Special attention will be given to topics of global awareness in Philadelphia. 

GPA members are exclusively invited to this private event to meet the candidates and share their input on the future of the city.
