The Philadelphia Warburg Chapter aims to actively engage those interested in transatlantic relations through discussions and lectures. The Chapter works closely with other internationally-focused organizations based in Philadelphia, such as the German-American Chamber of Commerce, the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, and the Foreign Policy Research and Institute.
The Chapter typically hosts luncheons at the offices of Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads. Events are generally attended by individuals working in the business community interested in German-American relations. Recently, Philadelphia held discussions with speakers like Klaus-Dieter Frankenberger, former Foreign Editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung; Metin Hakverdi, Member of the German Bundestag (SPD); and Martin Klingst, Author and Journalist.
