- As of November 2012, IVC's monthly receptions enter their 13th year!
And they're STILL the friendliest receptions
& best networking - local and international
The first Thursday of each month
(except January & July)
First Thursdays are a monthly opportunity to welcome our guests to the U.S. & Philadelphia, practice your language skills, make new local friends and stay in touch with what's happening internationally. It's the easiest way to practice Citizen Diplomacy without leaving Philadelphia!
