"Food for Thought"
The Emerging Business Leaders facilitate meals with targeted successful leaders of their industry. This is an opportunity for 8 - 10 young professionals to meet in a small group with some of Western New York's most influential residents. The meetings are held monthly at the Amherst Chamber of Commerce offices. The Chamber circulates a schedule of hosts, dates and times to EBL members. Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Other guests in 2011 included: Dr. Donna Fernandes of the Buffalo Zoo, Bill Collins of Travers Collins & Company, Thomas Kucharski of Buffalo Niagara Enterprise, Robert Gioia of The John R. Oishei Foundation, Margaret Sullivan of The Buffalo News, Paul Ciminelli of Ciminelli Development Corporation, former Erie County Executive Chris Collins and Jim Kaskie of Kaleida Health.
