Unshackle Upstate is teaming up this week with the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading advocacy group for small business, to present brief updates to the small business community in Buffalo and Rochester on the recently passed State Budget followed by Lessons In Advocacy.

Find out about the ways you can lend your voice using tools that NFIB and Unshackle Upstate make available for business owners to influence policy outcomes.

A business community that unites in its efforts can send a powerful message about what it will take for NY to truly be Open for Business.

Please join us Thursday, May 1st from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM at the offices of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, 665 Main Street, Suite 200, Buffalo, NY.

In the Rochester area, please join us Friday May 2nd from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM at the offices of Klein Steel, 105 Vanguard Parkway, Rochester, NY. Both programs are free of charge.

Please contact Erin DeSantis at NFIB/NY to RSVP for either event.
