The West Seneca Chamber of Commerce and the GEICO Local Office in West Seneca are teaming up to host Senator Patrick M. Gallivan’s annual Small Business Summit on Wednesday, Oct. 21. This event will take place in the large meeting room of the West Seneca Community Center & Library located at 1300 Union Road. Check-in will begin at 7:30 a.m, followed by the presentation from 8 to 9:30 a.m. The event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be offered. Pre-registration is required.
Senator Gallivan was first elected to the Senate in 2010, representing all or parts of Erie, Wyoming, Livingston and Monroe counties. He is a small business owner and has pushed to eliminate onerous and outdated regulations on private businesses.
The remainder of the session will focus on the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, its impact on our business community, and how we are all adjusting to new procedures and protocols. Frank Swiatek will offer a presentation titled “How to Solve Problems & Drive Results During the Recovery.” The small business environment is full of challenges, problems and issues (CPI’s) because of the Covid-19 crisis. This is in addition to solving your normal CPI’s of running a business! This session will focus on using an organized, creative, problem-solving approach to solving these CPI’s. It will help you to develop a critical thinking approach to solving undesirable results, and enable you to create solutions that work while reducing your frustrations.
Reservations are required and seating will be limited. Masks will be required until seated, and social distancing regulations will be closely followed. To reserve your spot at the Small Business Summit, please contact Senator Gallivan’s office at 656-8544.
