Mission & History
Making good things happen in Dover for business, visitors and residents.
The Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce, a member-driven organization, provides value to its members, residents and visitors, by facilitating and sustaining growth of businesses, organizations and events to promote a healthy thriving community.
Established on April 20, 1920 as an independent not-for-profit, the Chamber has been working to advance the economic well-being of its members and the community for ninety seven years and is described as the 'organization doing things that most people think just happen.'
Our services and initiatives are funded by membership, program participation and sponsorship. The Chamber is a non-government, non-partisan business advocacy organization. We are not a division or department of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the opinions and views of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are not necessarily reflective of the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce.
