Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce meets with city leaders

Advocates exchange ideas on growing borough's economy

The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce has traveled over the years to Washington, D.C. and to Albany to meet with influential lawmakers at the federal and state levels to promote the borough’s economic agenda. But until this year, the Chamber had not organized a delegation to go to City Hall to talk up Brooklyn businesses. … Sponsored by the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the City Legislative Visit gave Chamber members the chance to meet with key officials in city government, like Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, City Comptroller Scott Stringer and Public Advocate Letitia James, as well as officials in the de Blasio administration, to discuss ways to help Brooklyn’s economy grow and prosper.
