Emerging Business Leaders Need Help Donating $1,000 to a WNY Charity!
As a result of EBL's Leadership Program, the council has a $1,000 honorarium donation to give to a deserving WNY Charity or Non-Profit. But, EBL needs help deciding who. 

To assist EBL in bettering its offerings and programs we are asking  the region's young professionals (40 and under) to take a couple minutes to complete a brief survey.  This feedback will assist in future planning of events and programs, so EBL may better serve WNY's young professionals.  

At the end of the survey, participants will nominate the WNY Charity or Non-Profit of their choice.  The organization that receives the most nominations by Friday, April 21, 2017 will be awarded a $1,000 donation from EBL's Leadership Program!

Please share with your co-workers, family and friends!
