Luncheon Meetings | We Arrange Everything | Great Audience
Philadelphia Securities Association
Informational Luncheon Meetings are held at the historic and prestigious Union League of Philadelphia, 140 South Broad Street, in the heart of Philadelphia’s business, financial and hotel district. Newly and extensively refurbished bedrooms are available for your convenience should you choose to stay overnight.
We also meet at The Racquet Club of Philadelphia, 215 South 16th Street, a private social and athletic club also located in the heart of Center City Philadelphia, offering dining and lodging facilities and a variety of social activities.
The schedule generally includes a reception from 11:30 am to noon, during which time members may meet management on an informal basis. This is followed by a luncheon from noon to 12:30 pm, and the presentation from 12:10 to 12:45 pm and Q & A through 1:00 pm at which time the meeting is scheduled to end.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PRESENTING AT PSA
What Do I Need to Do as a Presenter?
The PSA will handle all arrangements, including securing appropriate facilities, determining the menu and handling all the necessary logistics, which include notifying our members, collecting responses and determining approximate expected attendance for the Association’s and the Company’s use. If the Company wishes to use audiovisual equipment for its presentation, e.g., PowerPoint, we will arrange to have the equipment available. If we are informed in advance we will also make certain that there are tables, easels and other furniture or equipment needed for displays, reports, products and brochures. Some companies have displays of their products and/or hand out small “mementos” that give us an additional reminder of the luncheon and company program.
When are Meetings Held?
The PSA holds its luncheon meetings throughout the year. Normally our meetings are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays but on occasion we do hold them on Mondays or Fridays. In the interest of maximum attendance and the maintenance of continued interest, we try not to schedule more than two meetings in a business week. However, recognizing the realities of business meetings, we are not adamant about this rule. Our experience suggests that attendance does not appreciably decline during the summer months.
We are pleased to work directly with the Company’s designated corporate officer or staff person charged with the investment/public relations responsibility and/or we will work closely with the Company’s financial or public relations firm representatives.
What is The Meeting Schedule?
Generally, we like the formal remarks to end at about 12:45 pm so that questions may be entertained until 1:00 pm when we conclude the meeting. If the Company’s representatives’ schedule permits, they may remain to answer questions individually and meet with those members who do not have pressing afternoon commitments. Attendance varies, of course, depending upon the investment interest in the host Company. We tend to get an average of about 60 attendees, smaller companies may draw around 40, and larger firms get in excess of 80.
Who Can A Presenting Company Invite?
If the company would like to invite other people such as directors, local plant managers, distributors, other corporate representatives, underwriters, investment analysts or bankers, they may do so themselves. Please send us a list of your invitees, with contact information, so that we account for those additional guests for the luncheon.
What is the Cost?
Each Company requesting to make a presentation before the PSA is expected to bear the cost, which currently averages $75 per attendee. During the past several years, we have hosted anywhere from 20 to 30 companies per year with an average attendance of over 60 investment professionals. Naturally, the larger better-known companies tend to attract a larger audience.
Even smaller companies, not listed on a major exchange and not located in the Greater Philadelphia / Delaware Valley area, usually will draw in excess of 40 people.
If a Company wishes to bulk ship handouts such as annual reports, current information packets, copies of its presentation or mementos, a contact at the venue will be provided to the company to make deliver arrangements.
What Else Should Presenters Know?
We normally have a head table for several of our Officers and those from the Company and/or P/R firm who will be participating in the presentation. Our President acts as host. If the Company wishes to have readable name cards for its Officers, they should provide them. Our President will host and introduce everyone sitting at the head table.
In order to ensure that everything necessary for a successful presentation runs smoothly, the Program Chairman will call the Company or its designated P/R firm two to three weeks prior to the scheduled appearance date to finalize the details.

Despite the advancement of modern medicine, many promising and innovative medicinal approaches are currently limited by issues related to drug delivery and the serious side-effects that often accompany them. These issues may include systemic toxicity, absorption issues, poor intracellular delivery and tissue penetration challenges, among others. A naturally targeted, LNC drug delivery platform offers the potential to address these shortcomings by creating a vehicle that can deliver a range of powerful, but otherwise compromised therapeutics in ways that overcome their innate limitations and unlock the potential to create and deliver life-changing medicines to patients.
