March is BPA Membership Drive Month at the GWACC!

By Heather L. Robinson, Executive Director, Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce

Monday, March 17, 2014 • 11:33am

The hyper-local relationships that Business and Professional Associations (BPA) offer to their members is extremely valuable.  All businesses are wise to form alliances with their neighbors.  Membership in the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce (GWACC) widens your net when the products/services your business offers are unique in some way.  ANYTIME you know your target customers exist outside of your immediate area, expanding your exposure can increase profitability!

The GWACC Board of Directors has voted to extend a limited-time first year CREDIT to current members of the Fanwood BPA, and the Scotch Plains BPA, in the amount of the annual dues they pay to those organizations.  That equates to about double of our regular first year discount, which we offer to every new member (and which cannot be combined with this limited-time offer).  You may sign up for this annual credit anytime during the entire month of March 2014.

The best way to start thinking about whether GWACC membership is right for your business is to attend one of our 2 regular monthly networking events.  A visit to our informative website will not be time wasted... there is so much information there about who we are, what we do, and how we can help your business with marketing, discounts, and relationships. 

In case you cannot make it to one of our regular March events, or if you simply want to ask more questions, we will be having a formal Membership Drive Informational.  Representatives from both the Fanwood BPA, and the Scotch Plains BPA, will also be there, were you to need to sign up for their BPA at the same time.  

Optional Informational Date: March 24, 2014
Time: 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Location: JCC of Central NJ, 1391 Martine Avenue, Scotch Plain, NJ
Coffee, soda, water, and cookies will be served

For over 60 years, the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce (GWACC) has been working to promote the economic prosperity of the businesses in our area. The GWACC is simply a community of business owners, and operators, who have relationships, and support one another.
 
We at the GWACC understand that there are compelling business reasons for business people in adjacent towns to build relationships with one another; to identify opportunities for partnering, to make referrals, and to buy from one another. Our members are primarily in Westfield, Garwood, Mountainside, Fanwood and Scotch Plains.
 
The GWACC hosts 2 street fairs a year in Downtown Westfield and operates the Westfield Farmer’s Market. Our monthly open networking events--one in the early morning and one directly after work--serve as an opportunity for current members to network with each other regularly, and for prospective members to come see what we're all about.
 
For more information about the GWACC, please visit our website, www.westfieldareachamber.com, where you will also find links to our active Facebook and Twitter accounts.  You may also call our office, (908)233-3021, to speak to staff directly Monday through Friday between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Our office is located at the top of the Bank of America building, 173 Elm Street, 3rd Fl, Westfield, NJ 07090.
