Our Mission

The mission of the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of PDMA is to create for the local community (Pennsylvania, Delaware and southern New Jersey) a forum where NPD professionals and those interested in the field can meet, network and share their experiences and knowledge of new product development methodologies.  Although participants in the Philadelphia Chapter’s events are not required to be members of PDMA, membership is strongly encouraged to take advantage of the extensive knowledge base and networking opportunities available through PDMA.
