STRENGTH IN NUMBERS: ALLIANCE PARTNERS THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF NEW YORK
The Buffalo Niagara Manufacturing Alliance (BNMA) advocates on behalf of its members on state and federal issues that affect manufacturing.
In pursuit of this objective, the BNMA is a member of the Manufacturing Alliance of New York State. It is a coalition of New York State Manufacturing Trade Associations. The Alliance works collectively to advocate on behalf of the state’s manufacturing community. It organizes coalition grassroots efforts, meetings with legislators, and key policy makers.
The Alliance has also partnered with the New York State Department of Labor and State University of New York (SUNY) to meet the workforce needs of manufacturers in New York. Through a variety of grants and special programs the Alliance partners are helping manufacturers address critical educational pipeline issues and advance Registered Apprenticeships in New York State.
The Alliance has representatives statewide and continues to grow annually. Collectively we represent over 5,400 manufacturers and businesses and over 181,300 manufacturing jobs.
