The Buffalo Niagara Partnership’s (BNP's) advocacy efforts are broad and far-reaching on behalf of our members.
- An experienced government affairs team focuses on economic development policy and business advocacy at all levels of government.
- Our advocacy efforts inform government leaders about the impact of their actions or inactions on local employers and their employees.
- We track legislation and mobilize coalitions in support or opposition of specific policies.
- We work to reduce burdensome regulations and bureaucratic red tape.
Our advocacy events connect members to elected officials at the federal, state and local level through a host of programs and events.
