NYS Legislative Session Ends with a Whimper

For Buffalo Niagara employers, the New York State Legislative session could not have ended soon enough.  Still reeling from the passage of a State Budget this spring that cemented New York’s earned reputation as one of the least business friendly states in the nation, employers were bracing for another round of mandates, regulations and cost-shifts in the final weeks of legislative activity.

What it was like to Intern at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership

The time I spent with the Partnership in the events and marketing departments has been an incredible learning opportunity. The staff I worked with were very helpful and presented me with amazing learning opportunities. I have been very fortunate because after completing my first internship with the events team, I was asked to come back a second time to help more broadly with events and marketing.  I was happy to accept both offers because these are not the types of internships where you just stand back and observe the professionals – they are very hands on and I am very grateful for that. I was able to jump in on everything that was going on and was given multiple tasks to own. The internships gave me a chance to see how everything works in the events and marketing fields and, more importantly, how they work together. Being able to be so involved really showed me what the job entails.
