Guided by its mission “to promote business, tourism and civic responsibility,” the Rehoboth Beach – Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce (RBDCC) strives to serve over 1,300 members. 

The chamber board includes a representative from each of the six business categories including accommodations, attractions, real estate, restaurants, retail and service. In addition, geographically, the chamber board has representation from the town limits of Dewey Beach, city limits of Rehoboth Beach, the Route One corridor and those outside of the 19971 zip code, which has ensured that all members have a voice.

Administrative offices for the Rehoboth Beach – Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce are located at 306 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach.

The RBDCC operates and staffs the seasonal kiosk on the Rehoboth Boardwalk, as well as the year-round Visitor’s Center and year-round independent administrative office on Rehoboth Avenue.

Board members and staff serve on various boards at the local, county and state level. On the legislative front, Lincoln Willis of The Willis Group LLC is the voice of the chamber and business membership. 

Chamber member activities include general membership meetings and Business After Hours events held monthly except in July and August. Chamber produced events such as Restaurant Week, Spring and Fall Sidewalk Sales, Merchant’s Attic, Movies and Bonfires on the Beach and the Sea Witch Festival are held annually.

Chamber members and staff are working together to improve the economic and civic vitality of the community. We invite you to join us. For more information, visit www.beach-fun.com.
