New ties between BIA/NYS and NYSEDC

Our executive director has been named to a vacant board slot at the New York State Economic Development Council, the state’s principal organization representing economic-development professionals. For more information, please see the news release from NYSEDC.

The 900 members of the NYSEDC include the leaders of industrial development authorities, local development corporations, county and municipal economic-development offices statewide, as well as related professionals in the utility, banking, finance and legal communities.

NYSEDC’s mission is promoting economic development, encouraging sound regional development pracices, and providing professional development for its members. Last year the NYSEDC added an “innovation council” within its membership, and BIA/NYS became a member of the Council.

The same news release also announces that the Orange County Industrial Development Authority won an award at the NYSEDC annual meeting for multi-media advertising in connection with our member the Orange County Business Accelerator.
