Informal networking begins with coffee, followed by a buffet breakfast.  A Program Speaker, pass-the-mic to every attendee, and door prizes complete our program.  Don't forget to bring your business cards to enter to win a door prize.  

Our monthly Breakfast is the Greater Rochester's largest monthly Chamber networking event, with 70-90 companies represented!  

Our Next Breakfast is on Friday, February 23rd at the Webster Recreation Center (1350 Chiyoda Drive):

Program:  Joshua B. Beisker and Andrew M. Washburn from Underberg & Kessler LLP will present on two hot topics for business.  Joshua will provide a brief overview of the federal Corporate Transparency Act (CTA), which Congress passed on January 1, 2021, to attempt to hinder money laundering, tax fraud, terrorism financing, and other financial crimes through shell or front companies. The law took effect on January 1, 2024, and likely applies to your business.  Josh will describe the requirements of the CTA, discuss who must comply, what you can do to prepare, and describe the financial penalties for failure to report.

In addition, Andrew will provide an update on the “New York State Gas Appliance Ban.”  In its effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and shift the state’s energy to renewable sources, New York has recently enacted state-wide legislation that prohibits the installation of gas appliances in new construction, such ban set to take effect as soon as 2026.  Andrew will inform us of the latest developments.

Upcoming Breakfast dates: February 23rd, March 22nd, April 26th
