WFD Member Renewal

Welcome Working for Downtown Members:

2014 was a fantastic year in Buffalo! We have experienced some wonderful changes and new restaurants and activity in the downtown region.  WFD continues to use this website & social media to help us promote Downtown Buffalo and communicate with our members and supporters. We ask that you continue to come and socialize with members and supporters of WFD at our events. We would love to see you there!

Working for Downtown continues to promote downtown through some fantastic tours such as Silo City and Buffalo RiverWorks. We are starting to investigate potential tour sites for 2015 and please contact us if you have any suggestions. This year we collaborated with The Buffalo Place & others to introduce Pop Up retail stores, which were a great success to introduce this new idea to the Buffalo market. Look for another Popup retail even in the spring of 2015. The Buffalo Talks lunch series continues into 2015, please see our Buffalo Talks section for a list of the new speakers and dates.

It is time for our annual WFD membership renewal. Like last year we are offering an online renewal option and we hope you will find the website a convenient way to renew your membership. You will receive an e-mail shortly with the link and renewal instructions.  If you would prefer, you can still mail your payment to: Working for Downtown PO Box 173, Buffalo, NY 14203.  Please complete the renewal form to ensure we have your most current information. You can also log into the Member Directory (User Name is the initial of your first name & your last name: Example: JSmith). If you have not yet logged in, please do so. Use the MEMBER HELP button if you are having trouble logging in.

Thank you in advance for another year of your support. We look forward to seeing you at upcoming WFD events in 2015!
