The Agency and the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce have long been partners in economic development. With the formation of the Leadership Alliance, both organizations can more seamlessly leverage their assets to work together in building a blueprint for a better Broome.Stacey Duncan
CEO of The Leadership Alliance
Built by historic innovators and fueled by a new class of creative visionaries, our communities are filled with rich history and unique experiences. Anchored by Greater Binghamton, once-industrial Broome County now drives a new economy focused on superior products and services.
This is a place, after all, where industrial ingenuity produced more than cigars, shoes or computers. These are the kinds of communities where a punch clock manufacturer becomes a part of the world’s largest technology company, a piano and organ maker pioneers virtual reality or a creative kid leaps ahead of his time to create one of the most iconic television programs in history. The Leadership Alliance brings the past, present and future together in a significant New York state location with a proud tradition of hard work and forward-thinking.
The Leadership Alliance represents the unprecedented collaboration of all the organizations that support Greater Binghamton’s business. Together, the Agency, the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce and Visit Binghamton are defining our economy together.
This unique combination of economic development, business support and community promotion provides all the tools necessary to thrive in Greater Binghamton.
Our alliance is about more than tax breaks and revolving loans. This isn’t a series of networking events or a listing on a website. Creating an attractive community is not just about tourism.
The Leadership Alliance takes a new approach to traditional IDA services, the chamber and marketing the community. It’s a true partnership that gets results, whether we’re recruiting and retaining businesses or building the workforce.
Consider that the Agency has attracted more than $725 million in capital investment over the years. The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce is a network of more than 750 businesses and nonprofit organizations. Visit Binghamton has drawn untold numbers of visitors to explore our communities.
Now consider what this means to you. It means you have a single source for services that can help you grow your operations, connect with fellow business leaders and add invaluable talent.
We do all this and so much more as a dynamic and approachable collective you can partner with. Whatever vision you have, we’re here to share it from conception to fruition. We ensure those dreams are sustainable and maintained in perpetuity.
We’re here for productive coordination of public and private resources for business success. We focus on talent retention and acquisition in support of workforce development needs. We are developing a collaborative and comprehensive economic development blueprint. We are the primary resource for current information on business activity. We enhance the area’s image and visibility with proactive communications and advocacy programs.
We are the Leadership Alliance and we invite you to partner with us as we define the economy together.
