Chamber Alliance of New York State (CANYS) Annual Winter Conference in Albany
We took part in the Chamber Alliance of New York State (CANYS) Annual Winter Conference in Albany. While there, we engaged in many different discussions ranging from the current and future state of the business climate in New York State, to ways to be more efficient and proactive with important information that benefits business owners and entrepreneurs. Additionally, Jennifer Conway, Chamber President and CEO, was voted in as a board member for CANYS.
We finalized and approved our 2017 Legislative Agenda by both our Legislative Committee and our Government Affairs Committee. As we continue on into 2017, we have laid out a strong plan of action for our advocacy initiatives that will help create a healthy business environment. On Tuesday, January 31, we will be holding our 2017 Legislative Agenda Rollout and Unshackle Upstate Reception to highlight these plans to Chamber members.
We convened with Broome County officials, local business leaders, and community stakeholders to discuss the Greater Binghamton Airport (BGM). During this meeting, we talked about the current status of flights and opportunities moving forward. We also discussed various ways that we can support the continued operation of BGM and how we can help its success.
