Sunnyside Chamber President Runs First Public Meeting
The luncheon meeting June 12, at Dazies Restaurant was the first public meeting of the Sunnyside Chamber helmed by new President Swain Weiner, after past- President Rebecca Barker had to step down due to family issues. Commercial real estate broker Weiner was voted in by the Board of Directors last week to replace her. Weiner, who recently partnered with Greiner Maltz in opening up a new division, said, “It is an honor to work with so many good business leaders.”
Weiner praised the work of Barker, who will share chairman of the board status with Ira Greenberg, as is customary for past presidents, and said he was proud of having served the chamber as secretary until now. Weiner’s first guest speakers were Peter Wing of Flushing who addressed the necessity of state legislators and local business working together, after he was asked by Queens Chamber of Commerce to attend a special meeting in Albany.
