Advocacy

Advocacy Overview

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.

I was very impressed with resources the Partnership employed to help influence this important legislation.

-Sam Savarino, CEO Savarino Companies
