PDF icon

Dear Business Owner, 

As a member of the Western New York small business community, you know that guiding and growing a small business in today’s economy can be a daunting task with seemingly few resources dedicated to helping you – the business owner. 

With that challenge in mind, I am teaming up with the West Seneca Chamber of Commerce and area leaders in business development to bring a free small business summit to Erie County and you’re invited! 

The event is free of charge and will be held at the Certo Brothers Distributing Company on May 16th from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.  (refreshments and light breakfast starting at 7:30 am with Summit starting promptly at 8:00am). This will be a great opportunity to hear about new ideas in small business development and to network with other local business owners. Space is limited so please review the information below and register right away. 

                                                                                                I hope to see you on May 16th! 

                                                                                                Patrick M. Gallivan

                                                                                                New York State Senator – 59th District



When:                 Friday, May 16th, 2014, 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM
