SENATOR GALLIVAN HOSTING TWO SMALL BUSINESS SUMMITS IN WESTERN NEW YORK

 

Seminars in East Aurora And Geneseo Will Feature Guest Speaker, Networking Opportunities

Senator Patrick M. Gallivan, Deputy Republican Conference Leader For Economic Development, will host a pair of small business seminars later this month in cooperation with area chambers of commerce.

The first summit will take place in the Gleed Auditorium at the Aurora Town Hall on Tuesday, October 22nd from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM and is being hosted in partnership with the East Aurora Area Chamber of Commerce.

The following week, Gallivan is teaming up with the Livingston County Area Chamber of Commerce, the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce, the Livingston County Industrial Development Agency and the Livingston County Development Group to present a similar program in Geneseo at SUNY Geneseo’s new Doty Building in the Tower Room on Tuesday, October 29th from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM (7:30 AM registration).

Both events are a great opportunity to hear from experts in small business development and to network with other local business owners, but space is limited! So please review the information below and register right away.

“The Western New York small business community knows that guiding and growing a small business in today’s economy can be a daunting task with seemingly few resources dedicated to helping the business owner,” Gallivan said. “By bringing area and national leaders in business development together with the local small business community, we hope to offer business owners ideas and insights to help them grow, expand and hire right here in Western New York.”

Presentations will include:
