Board of Block Clubs of Buffalo & Erie County
THE BOARD OF BLOCK CLUBS OF BUFFALO AND ERIE COUNTY INC. is an organization comprised of block clubs, tenant councils, associations and coalitions from the city of Buffalo and Erie County. Its purpose is to inform area block club leaders and all other groups registered with them of local events, happenings, and opportunities available to them. They also mail information about organizations and subjects of interest to contact people from the block clubs and area groups.
The Board’s meetings are held monthly (except for a brief hiatus in summer) on the last Thursday of the month, unless that happens to be a National Holiday which then changes it to the previous Thursday to the Holiday.

Block club leaders network with each other and exchange information and ideas to keep abreast of the latest events.
