March

The worst business environment in decades has failed to dent interest in this Thursday’s Mega Mixer Business Expo, the annual trade show sponsored by The Business Council of Westchester.
The program will run from 2-6 p.m. at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown. Two hundred exhibitors and 1,000 visitors are expected, about the same as last year. In the tougher economic climate, businesspeople are looking to expand their list of prospects, council spokeswoman Hillary Millman said.
“People are looking for opportunities anywhere they can find it,” she said.
A new feature this year is the Speakers Spot. Council members will give 15-minute talks on the following topics: how to transition from unemployed to being a business owner; new media; building brand awareness; housing solutions for relocating employees; infrared thermography; going paperless; and voice over the Internet (VoIP) telephone service.
A feature continued from last year will be the Green Aisle, featuring 30 ecology-friendly companies. Visiting businesses will be invited to take the “Green Business Challenge” by adopting environmentally sound practices.
Admission to the Mega Mixer is $10; attendees may register online at westchesterny.org or by calling (914) 948-2110. Walk-ins are welcome.

In a tough economy for workers and small businesses alike, one local organization is turning to a marketing tool commonly found in supermarkets — the buy one, get one free special — to recruit new members who may be on tight budgets.

The chamber said that it is offering the 2-for-1 deal to build its membership base and help businesses that are struggling in a slow economy.

The memberships are good for one year. Cost of memberships is $85 for individuals and $225 for small businesses with up to five employees, according to the chamber’s Web site.

Suozzi meets with Business Council

October
29

Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi, who chairs the state Commission on Property Tax Relief, met yesterday with the 45-member board of directors of the Business Council of Westchester to discuss property tax cap legislation before the state Legislature. Afterward, directors of the Harrison-based business group said they would urge their membership to write and call legislators to support the cap, the key recommendation in the commission’s preliminary report in June. Council Executive Director Marsha Gordon said businesses need to lobby now for the cap as the Legislature prepares to hold a special session starting Nov. 18 to address the state budget crisis. Board Chairman Stephen J. Jones said that “this current fiscal crisis in Albany, I hope, is a unique opportunity to implement needed change.” The commission’s final report is due Dec. 1.
