New York State Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul
Invites You to a
Virtual Presentation Highlighting New York State’s Budget
TODAY 1:00 pm
Hosted by Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce
The budget builds on the bold vision to reimagine, rebuild & renew New York by supporting pandemic recovery of highly-impacted small businesses, restaurants and the arts & entertainment industries, placing a cap on broadband for low-income families, providing billions in rent relief and to preserve 100,000 affordable homes, investments from the private and public sectors to create Green Economy opportunities and create the nation’s largest infrastructure plan to drive growth and opportunity for all.
Please Respond ASAP to the Three Surveys Below:
Your Feedback is Important!
Member Feedback Survey
The Chamber needs your input! We would like to understand what services and programs were most valuable to you (or your clients/our community) last year - particularly as we navigated COVID-19 and related economic impacts together. We'd also like to know what services might meet your needs moving forward.

Your feedback will support our 2021 Work Plan and help ensure our member services, communications, event & program mix, advocacy efforts, and community/quality of life investments are serving the broadest stakeholder base possible.
Employer Survey:
Workforce Recruitment Challenges

As part of a collaboration between Cornell University and Tompkins County Workforce Development Board, we kindly ask you to answer a short survey about the challenges and needs you are currently facing in recruiting suitable employees.

The findings will be a key input for devising the Workforce Development Board’s employment and skills strategy for 2021. The survey should not take more than 10 minutes, and all data will remain private and confidential.
