West Van Nuys Chamber of Commerce (1952-1977) | Special Collections & Archives

Name: West Van Nuys Chamber of Commerce (1952-1977)

Historical Note:

The West Van Nuys Chamber of Commerce (WVNCC) was established in 1952 by a group of local merchants. The Chamber was a member of the West Valley Associated Chambers of Commerce and the Valley-Wide Streets, Highways and Transportation Committee. Through voluntary associations, local businessmen and property owners helped direct the growth and development of the San Fernando Valley.

Because WVNCC long championed the cause of the Van Nuys Airport, the most active private-plane airport in California, the association is often referred to as "The Airport Chamber." Other important issues backed by the Chamber include defense contracts coming to the San Fernando Valley, the development of transportation networks, education, housing and population growth, recreational facilities and public works.
