Northeast Area Update | Nov. 8

October was a busy month on the Upper East Side. Last week we hosted a panel on healthcare reform at the Business at Sunrise event. We had a lot of questions and our panelists did a great job helping peel away the layers of some complicated legislation.

Our own NE Council will be doing some planning for the upcoming year on Wednesday, Nov 13th. Got ideas about how to improve our Chamber events? Interested in seeing your NE Council get more involved? Send your suggestions to us via our Facebook page.
