Purpose and Mission

The Rhinebeck Area Chamber of Commerce provides the platform and tools to foster growth, to cultivate, build and enrich relationships, and promote leadership development for our business community. As we showcase Rhinebeck and the surrounding area as a destination for tourism, and a thriving location for business and living, we aim to enhance the experience here for all. The Chamber also looks to be an active advocate for the business community as it relates to local government and planning, and serves Rhinebeck proper and many neighboring towns and villages in the Northern Dutchess County region of the Hudson Valley.

Since 1957, the Rhinebeck Area Chamber of Commerce has been a steady partner with the local business community. Joining forces and working together with members to create positive change and move forward are some of our major focuses.
