Thomas J. Jennings, Special Counsel in the Environmental Department in the Philadelphia office of Saul Ewing LLP, was elected vice chair of the Bucks County International Trade Council (BCITC), at the annual meeting held at the Keystone Industrial Port Complex in Fairless Hills.

The BCITC is a non-profit organization established in 1993 with the support of the Bucks County Commissioners as a result of a collaborative effort of five Bucks County Chambers of Commerce to provide service and education to businesses of Bucks County in an effort to promote international trade. BCITC is a membership supported organization that provides information and referral services, educational programs and network opportunities in an effort to facilitate, promote and increase international trade.

The BCITC has also taken a leadership role in special projects of concern to its members, including the successful effort to secure funding for the dredging of the Fairless Turning Basin in the Delaware River last year. Mr. Jennings assisted the BCITC with its presentation to federal officials for that project.

Gary B. Eidelman, a partner in the Business Department and vice office managing partner in the Baltimore office of Saul Ewing LLP, was elected to the board of directors for the Downtown Partnership at its recent 2005 Annual Meeting.

Downtown Partnership is a nonprofit corporation working with the public and private sectors to make Downtown Baltimore a great place for businesses, employees, residents, and visitors.
