AMHERST, NY- On Friday, January 24, 2014 the Amherst Chamber of Commerce will hold its 2014 Annual Luncheon at Classics V Banquet Center on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst.  Registration will begin at 11:30 am and the lunch program will start promptly at 12:00 noon.  The Chamber’s Annual Luncheon features the swearing-in of the 2014 Board of Directors by United States Congressman Brian Higgins, the State of the Town Address by Amherst Supervisor Barry Weinstein and the presentation of the Chamber’s 2014 Public Policy Agenda.

Amherst Town Supervisor Dr. Barry Weinstein will continue the annual tradition of presenting the State of the Town of Amherst Address at the luncheon.  Dr. Weinstein’s report on the work of the Town Board, under his leadership, on behalf of the taxpayers of Amherst is always of great interest to not only the members of the Amherst Chamber, but the community as a whole. The chamber looks forward to once again collaborating with Supervisor Weinstein on the important issues facing the Town of Amherst in 2014.

Also at the 2014 Annual Luncheon, the Amherst Chamber of Commerce will unveil our 2014 Public Policy Agenda.  With a membership in excess of 2,700, the Amherst Chamber has the ability to impact policy and collaborate with our partners to ensure that the organization’s voice and positions are heard by public decision makers. The agenda identifies regional, state, federal and local priorities for 2014.
