Hear Mayor Michael Nutter's Keynote Address from the Quarterly Meeting

Hear Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter's keynote address from the Association's Quarterly Meeting and Luncheon on Monday, March 17.

Nutter was sworn in as the 98th mayor of Philadelphia on Jan. 7. He is a native Philadelphian with an accomplished career in public service, business and financial administration. He served as a Philadelphia City Councilman for nearly 15 years representing the city's Fourth District encompassing the communities of Wynnefield, Overbrook, Roxborough, Manayunk, East Falls, Mt. Airy and parts of North and West Philadelphia.

The March Quarterly Meeting and Luncheon was held at the Park Hyatt Philadelphia at the Bellevue, Broad and Walnut streets.

Immediate-Past Chancellor Jane L. Dalton was honored at the event. Dalton was presented with a gold box, an exact replica of the one presented to Andrew Hamilton for his defense of John Peter Zenger in 1735. The gold box is presented annually to the immediate-past Chancellor and is inscribed with the message "acquired not by money, but by character."
