Today our Chamber is one of the country's largest suburban chambers. Through its Board of Directors, scores of dedicated volunteers, strategic partnerships and more than 3,000 members, the Chamber works to protect, accelerate and facilitate collaboration of the business interests in the Buffalo Niagara region.

Mission: GOAL - To serve as a hub for business GOAL - To provide solutions for business GOAL - To ensure that fees and time dedicated to the Chamber by our members is an investment - not a donation. Our recognition and clout in the marketplace is the result of the hard work, dedication and vision of our members, our staff and our volunteer leadership. No one component is solely responsible for our success. We embrace our members and their needs and mobilize programs and services to meet those needs.
