CEOs Speak 2020 

The Business Council has again sponsored the Siena Research Institute's Upstate Business Leaders' Survey. At a time of significant political change in Albany, and political tension in Washington, the business community is facing a wide range of economic and policy challenges. Join us to hear how your business colleagues are viewing the national and state-level forces shaping New York’s business climate and impacting company’s day to day operations. 


Business Council President Heather C. Briccetti will be joining Donald Levy, Director of the Siena Research Institute and others, in presenting and commenting on the survey results at four events.
