Committed to Buffalo Niagara

The Buffalo Niagara Partnership is the area’s regional chamber of commerce and privately-funded economic development organization.  Partnership members, comprised of some of the most established regional employers, including dozens of major investors, employ more than a quarter of a million people in the Buffalo Niagara region.

By mobilizing members and strategic partners around common goals, the Partnership grows private investment and jobs in Buffalo Niagara through advocacy, business development and convening. Since 1844, the Partnership has been working to make Buffalo Niagara a better place in which to do business.
