GWACC Expands into Clark

Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce

GWACC Chamber of Commerce at its November Board of Director meeting approved the addition of the Clark Business Alliance, and the Irish Business Association (IBA) to the GWACC Chamber. GWACC will now cover six towns, Clark, Fanwood, Garwood, Mountainside, Scotch Plains, and Westfield. 

Elected to the GWACC Board of Directors for a one-year term were Alan Tennant, President of the Clark Business Alliance, and Steve Flood, President of the Irish Business Association. These additions will afford exceptional access to business professionals in all six towns. 

The first meeting in Clark took place at Manny’s Diner on November 10 and was sponsored by the Clark Township. GWACC will now continue to schedule and publicize IBA and Clark Township events. 

Gene Jannotti, GWACC CEO stated, “This is the first expansion of GWACC in many years and it will bring a new group of business professionals into the organization. All existing members will benefit from this relationship.” 

Clark Mayor Sal Bonaccorso said, “I am excited to see the Clark Business Alliance as part of GWACC working with businesses in town. We need to support our local businesses in any way we can, they are the heartbeat of a thriving community.”

All future networking event information and registration can be found on the GWACC website,
