The Delaware Small Business Chamber has a variety of committees that members may join to help the chamber in different ways. Each committee has a member from the Board of Directors as well as volunteers from our general membership. Most committees meet 4-6 times a year and require a minimal amount of time. We encourage all of our members to participate.
