Under this agreement, members in one organization will be entitled to associate membership in the other. This agreement is designed to build cross-border business relationships and create new opportunities in our bi-national economy.

In a new era of uncertainty in international relations and trade, the GNCC and the Partnership have worked together to strengthen economic ties between Niagara and Buffalo.

This partnership is the latest step in the work the two organizations have undertaken to strengthen our trade links and thin our border.

An associate membership to the Partnership offers benefits such as:

  • Access to Partnership events and programs at member pricing
  • A quarterly newsletter including details on events, important cross-border policy updates, and expert blog posts targeting cross-border business
  • Opportunities to highlight member brands in Western New York
