Due to the ongoing COVID situation, we have taken the necessary precaution of rescheduling this event to Monday, March 28 at the Albany Capital Center. Take a break from budget negotiations to join us in Albany at this MWBE Networking Event!

The MWBE Reception is for minority and women-owned business enterprises with the goal of helping organizations access new business opportunities, build partnerships, and meet other MWBE companies from around the state, and interact with key legislators and government officials. This event is for Business Council members only and will take place before our Legislators’ Reception.

If you are not a member of The Business Council and would like more information about joining, please contact Howard Becker, Vice President of Membership at [email protected].
