2020 Annual Meeting - Virtual Event

September 24, 2020 - September 25, 2020

September 23 (1:00 - 4:00 p.m.)

September 24 (10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.)

Due to the continued uncertainty associated with the coronavirus pandemic, and the varying comfort levels of individuals, we have decided to cancel our in-person Annual Meeting at The Sagamore Resort in September and instead are working on a compelling virtual program.

While our team remains in close contact with state officials, we feel that this decision is in the best interest of the health and welfare of our community and members.

We are sorry to not be able to convene in person this year, however we look forward to bringing you an exciting program, and sponsorship opportunities that will still present your company the benefit of increased visibility before top business leaders in New York State.

Check back regularly for up-to-date conference details


The 2020 Annual Meeting will be a unique virtual event. Despite the change in format, we are still planning a full slate of resourceful programming, currently working to secure several expert presenters in key focus areas to our members including the November elections and the economy. The Business Council is committed to helping our members bounce back from a continued fragile economy and our speakers will reflect this commitment. We are also planning to set the table for the November elections where of course the White House is at the top of the ticket. Despite not being able to attend in person we are confident you will find your participation in this event beneficial to you and your company.


The Business Council is THE business association in New York State. By sponsoring our Annual Meeting your organization's name and logo will be front and center in the minds of the state's leading voice in business, government and media. Our conference development team will work with YOU to: 

  • Build awareness for your company/organization
  • Grab the attention of your diverse membership that simply cannot be found anywhere else 
  • Associate your brand with New York's other best and brightest

In this new age of Virtual meetings, we have put together many new opportunities for you to increase your company's visibility to the top business leaders in New York State.
