The Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau has announced the resignation of David B. Morgan, the founding executive director.
“It has been four wonderful years on this journey and I have enjoyed every moment,” Morgan said.
During these four years, the DRTCC has grown from a small local chamber to a strong regional force. Much has been accomplished under David Morgan’s leadership said Carolyn Holdsworth, president of the chamber.
Morgan created the brand “the Delaware River Towns”; nearly quadrupling membership from less than 100 to nearly 400; established a 501c3 foundation “Delaware River Towns Charities”; opened a visitors center; published a visitors’ guide with wide distribution; created new events, including Small Business Saturday, Turkey Trot, Out and About for Business, Art & Antiques Weekend, Zombie Crawl, Pride 5, Restaurant Week, First Fridays, Outside the White Cube, and seasonal fireworks.
Morgan also spearheaded funding grants from New Jersey and Pennsylvania governments; established partnerships with Hunterdon County Economic Development, New Hope Celebrates, Philadelphia Independence Business Alliance, NJLGBT, Princeton Regional, Hunterdon County, Central and Lower Bucks Chamber of Commerce.
He developed marketing campaigns with Happenings Media and the Bucks County Herald and launched a destination marketing website
“He has poured passion into the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce over the past four years. His vision and creativity have made the chamber what it is today,” Holdsworth said.
The board of directors has asked Morgan to stay on in the role as they begin the search for a new executive director.
“It has been my great pleasure to work so closely with the many wonderful businesses of the Delaware River Towns and I look forward to continuing as a committed member of the community,” Morgan said.
