Purpose

Senator Timothy M. Kennedy, the ranking member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business, will hold a “Business Symposium” Wednesday, December 7 from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Lucarelli’s Banquet Center in Lackawanna.

Senator Kennedy invites local business owners and entrepreneurs to participate in the outreach event, which he designed to help businesses gain access to programs, advice and opportunities available to help them grow in our community.

“The economic revival of Western New York will rely heavily on the hard work and energy of our local business owners,” Senator Kennedy said. “We need to get people back to work, and there’s no better way to do that than by empowering businesses with opportunities available to help them grow and expand. I hope business owners and entrepreneurs will join us for our ‘Business Symposium’ – which is an exciting opportunity for us to connect businesses with programs, resources and advice to help them create new jobs.”

The Business Symposium – which is being presented by Kennedy and local business leaders – will offer one-stop access to information regarding tax credits available for small businesses, financing for start-ups and expansion, opportunities for improving efficiency, effective uses of social media, networking opportunities with other local business owners and much more.

To attend Senator Kennedy’s Business Symposium, please RSVP to the Senator’s office at 716-826-2683. Space is limited. You can also contact Senator Kennedy’s office for more information about this event or for information regarding resources available for local businesses. A continental breakfast will be served, compliments of Senator Kennedy, at no cost to taxpayers.
