Survey seeks input from business leaders

The NYS Economic Development Council (EDC) wants to know what business leaders think about New York State’s economy and the economy of the southern tier. This short survey will provide NYSEDC  with important information that will guide its advocacy and program development during 2016.
The New York State Economic Development Council is the state’s principal organization representing economic development professionals. Our 900 members include the leadership of Industrial Development Agencies, Local Development Corporations, commercial and investment banks, underwriters, bond counsels, utilities, chambers of commerce and private corporations.

The purpose of NYSEDC is to promote the economic development of the state and its communities, encourage sound practices in the conduct of regional and statewide development programs, and to develop education programs that enhance the professional development skills of NYSEDC members.
Please use this link to complete the short survey. It is completely confidential.
