An Overview Of Travel Berkeley Springs
-- M. Rhodes
As an administrator for My Berkeley Springs LLC and a "transplant" to the area, it didn't take long to notice that there seems to be some mystery and some would even call it paranoia surrounding the company known as Travel Berkeley Springs. Many rumors about the company and it's officers abound. Most people will give into intrigue when acronym's like "CIA" or "FBI" are used, as in the case of author Jeanne Mozier who certainly has her fair share of cynics for whatever reason(s). This article seeks to relate information about the company and it's business endeavors.
In 1990 Morgan County, Berkeley Springs Visitors Bureau Inc. changed it's name to Travel Berkeley Springs. The business charter for Travel Berkeley Springs states that it is an “Admin/Support Waste Mgt/Remediation Services, Administrative Support Services – Travel Arrangement and Reservation Services (travel, tour, convention & visitors bureaus)” business” It's officers are: Jeanne Mozier, Stephanie Rebant, Laura Smith, and Matt Omps. The West Virginia Department of Tourism site lists the Berkeley Springs Convention and Visitors's Bureau in Berkeley Springs on Fairfax and has the berkeleysprings (.com) website address. Note: While researching this article, the administrators of My Berkeley Springs discovered that the site TravelBerkeleySprings.com had not been purchased and did therefore purchase it although they have no business affiliation.
