What is the Central Upstate Manufacturing Breakfast?


Published on

As you are well aware, our state’s business community is enduring difficult times. Taxes are high, international competition is highly competitive, and a national lagging economy continues to hinder our growth. The manufacturing community of New York State is no different, in that times are tough. But if history acts as any indicator, our ability to remain resilient and adapt to our surroundings has proven time and time again our strength, and we will, with your help, weather our way through the difficult times and come out strong.

Join MACNY’s membership in an engaging conversation on policy, politics, and the state of manufacturing.
