Business and Community Roundtable Discussions
The Chamber initiated the Business and Community Roundtable Discussions to better understand the needs of the individual communities and businesses primarily within Broome County. Our goal with these discussions is to: engage in a dialogue with small business to identify key issues and opportunities, develop recommendations on strategies to enhance the small business climate in our area, and to champion small business interests in the County.
Small Business Lobby Day in Albany
If there is a specific issue that is affecting your small business, this is a way to go to Albany and talk to your local elected official in their office. Small Business Lobby Day continues to be vitally important in advocating for policies that promote the economic health of small business in New York State. Each year a delegation of small business owner/operators makes the trip to Albany to discuss issues with their elected officials and ensure the voice of small business is being heard!
