Starting our 18th season with an exceptional line-up of speakers. 

Welcome to the Niagara University Family Business Center. Your presence at our forums greatly enhances our reputation as one of WNY’s top business centers.
Due to the current pandemic, our first three forums will be done virtually through Zoom. We are hoping by February we can meet again in person. The virtual sessions will begin at 8:15 a.m. and finish at 9:30 a.m. When we are able to meet in person, the breakfast forums will start at 7:30 a.m. with peer networking and a full breakfast. The presentation and guest speaker will start at 8:15 a.m. and will conclude by 9:30 a.m. Below is our schedule for the new season.
