Beth Hilton, executive director, Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce (GOFCC), has been invited to participate on the Central/Finger Lakes Regional Advisory Committee for NY State Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s initiative to establish the New York Health Benefit Exchange (NYHBE), announced Barbara Bateman, GOFCC board president.
“We are delighted that Beth has been asked to represent us on this committee,” Bateman said. “Our members and area businesses will benefit from both her involvement and from the information she will be able to share with us.”
Other regional committees include: New York City/Metro; Long Island; Capital District/Mid-Hudson/Northern; and Western New York. Each committee is comprised of representatives of consumers, small business, health care providers, insurance agents and brokers, labor organizations, and other stakeholders, according to the letter of invitation from Donna Frescatore, executive director, NYHBE. Each committee will meet no more than once a month in a location in the region.
Incorporated in 1915, the greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce has been in existence for more than 85 years, Bateman said. “The Chamber is an active, energetic and growing organization with more than 500 members. We are working to improve business and the quality of life for the entire region. The Chamber and our members have a stake in Oswego County’s future and we are working hard to assure that we contribute to our growth.
Beth’s involvement on this regional advisory committee is another example of how we are representing our county and our businesses in the rapidly changing healthcare landscape”
