The 2012 Annual Luncheon will again feature the State of the Town Address by Amherst Supervisor Dr. Barry Weinstein. The Chamber works closely with the elected officials of the Town of Amherst throughout the year and looks forward to continuing this tradition with Dr. Weinstein's presentation at the luncheon.


The luncheon will be the 2012 luncheon as the platform to launch the Chamber's annual Legislative Agenda to members and elected officials. The Agenda will focus on issue areas rather than the previous format of issues by level of government. This change will allow the agenda to be easier to read and user friendly. Highlights of the agenda include: the WNY Regional Economic Development Strategic Plan, Health Insurance Exchanges and updating adaptive reuse policies.


The Amherst Chamber of Commerce's Annual Luncheon is presented by the Chamber's Public Affairs Council.  Members of the Council will serve as hosts for the event and can be easily identified by their silver nametags. Individual tickets are available for $37.50 and corporate tables of eight are available for $375.
