My experience at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership as a marketing and events intern was valuable. The working culture was conducive to learning and everyone was very friendly. I had a chance not only to work for marketing and events, but to also check out other departments. My supervisor, Krystal Testa, did not limit me to only one area, instead, she encouraged me to learn as much as possible while I was with the Buffalo Niagara Partnership. I was able to showcase my marketing skills while also developing new ones during my time working with the marketing team. I worked on many projects and received training on their customer relationship management (CRM) system and WordPress.
We strongly oppose yet another hike in New York State’s minimum wage.
“New York already pays one of the highest minimum wage rates in the country, with a scheduled increase to $9.00/hour set for the end of this year. Attempts to raise the minimum wage again – to levels that would put New York’s rate well above the vast majority for the country – will do nothing but further disadvantage our state which is already well known as a high-tax, overly regulated, and unfriendly place for business,” said our President & CEO, Dottie Gallagher-Cohen.
