The Delmarva Black Chamber of Commerce (DBCC) exists to make the community a better place to work, live and play. The DBCC is a not-for-profit advocate for Black business growth, as well as economic development and empowerment. It is an organization managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, established to promote civic, commercial, industrial and agricultural progress within the community.
Membership provides businesses with information about issues that affect them and adds their voices to the DBCC’s efforts to address them. Not only do members have a voice on a local level, but at a state and regional level.
The DBCC at all levels speaks on behalf of the business community with the media and public/private/nonprofit sector organizations on matters that impact not only the business community but also the community at large.
Membership in the DBCC has many benefits! The chamber strives to promote the creation, growth and sustainability of Black owned l businesses in Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Membership benefits continue to be enhanced to support and reflect our diverse membership. The chamber offers a wide range of resources to its members to enhance their success and assist in their growth. These resources include:
- Retirement Planning

A significant value of joining the DBCC is the positive perception among consumers about membership.

Given our work, membership in the DBCC is open to any business, corporation or nonprofit organization committed to advocating for Black enterprise growth and the economic empowerment of African Americans in Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland
