Chamber CEO Elaine Morgan credits a new tourism website for the county has significantly helped the chamber’s tourism marketing efforts. Morgan also said the Berkeley Chamber of Commerce continued to spend money on media buys and memberships in trade associations to keep the region’s name in front of people. She said the chamber plans to continue that strategy.
