Celebrating 47 Years Of Bridging Industry and Education

Mission Statement: NFIEC's mission is to build bridges between industry and education to benefit students and adults for the workforce of today and tomorrow.

 Our Career Expo Night took place on October 26 at the Walden Galleria! It was another successful night!

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 College and Career Portfolio (CCP), formerly known as 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.


About Us

For over 47 years, Niagara Frontier Industry Education Council (NFIEC) has brought executives, educators, parents, and students together to develop strategies that help build the skills of our students to become successful in the workplace.  NFIEC functions as a common meeting ground for business, industry, education, labor, and government to collaborate. Today, as a result of ongoing efforts, NFIEC supports a more cooperative relationship with partners offering workshops, scholarship programs, and other community services.

Through the years, NFIEC has developed and presented a variety of programs, courses, and community services all aimed at helping the student of today become the educated, well-adjusted, and contributing employees of tomorrow. The benefits of collective input and support in many career initiatives allow NFIEC to support our members and partners across Western New York.

Our purpose is to work as an umbrella organization to communicate, support, and collaborate discussions between business and education.  NFIEC is a 501-c- 3 nonprofit organization and seeks membership and sponsorship for services and programs. NFIEC develops and utilizes fundraisers, direct sponsorship, and seeks grants to support our mission. Join our organization today!
