GWBA to change name

At the February meeting, members of the Greater Williamston Business Association (GWBA) decided to change the name of the local business association which has been in existence since the mid 1980s. The organization will be known as the Palmetto Business Association once a new logo and paperwork associated with the name change is completed.

GWBA president Mike Simpson said the change is part of an effort to make the association more inclusive of businesses and other possible members located outside Williamston, including those in nearby West Pelzer and Pelzer. The name change was presented and discussed in the January meeting of the GWBA but was tabled to allow more input from members.
