Providing Much-Needed Community Resources
In 1976, the Buffalo Area Chamber of Commerce joined with Erie 1 BOCES (Board of Cooperative Educational Services) to establish the Niagara Frontier Industry Education Council, Inc. (NFIEC). Today, we provide outreach services and scholarship programs as well as other community resources through the help of our partners and members.
NFIEC provides students a high quality opportunity to showcase their skills to employers with the Business and Education Employability Portfolio (BEEP). This program is available to local students through their school district to teach them valuable workplace skills and competencies.
When you join the Niagara Frontier Industry Education Council, you are eligible for all the benefits we offer, including participation in our NFIEC career programming and our popular scholarship program. Support our student assistance programs by joining us today.
Board & Members
Our valued educational partnerships have allowed us to provide ongoing outreach support to our community members in the form of our career awareness courses and workshops. We also showcase our stars at our annual award's breakfast.
