The Business Council of New York State is the primary advocacy group for business in New York.

"Our members, New York's business leaders, are the heart of The Business Council. They continue to lead the way on public advocacy for business, just as our founding members did a century ago," said Heather C. Briccetti, Esq., president and CEO of The Business Council.

The Business Council originated on March 27, 1914 in Buffalo, N.Y. when a group of western New York manufacturers convened to draft a constitution for an association which would advocate and create a voice for business. Today, The Business Council's membership comprises more than 2,300 leading businesses from Long Island to Buffalo, representing large and small business interests. The Business Council carries on the mission of the founding organizations to create economic growth, good jobs and strong communities across New York State.

Members of The Business Council have access to exclusive products and services, including The Human Resource Hotline, The Business Council Insurance Fund and Made In New York.
