Now that this unusual year is coming to a close, BBLA is gearing up to increase membership in 2022, and build on the many membership improvements which began in 2020.  
Thank you if you have already completed your 2022 membership renewal, in which case you can disregard the renewal request section. However, the year-end summary of BBLA activities found below is for all Bethany Beach property owners regardless of your membership status. Please take a look below at our efforts throughout 2021.
Here’s a recap of major BBLA efforts in 2021:
  • Developed an advocacy strategic plan focused on protecting the coastal towns from storm damage

For 2022, our dues remain at $20 per membership. If you have multiple email addresses tied to your membership account, you only need to renew once using any one of your addresses.
We want to thank our generous members who give a donation with their dues payment. This has allowed us to sustain our work as well as ensure that BBLA can be a good community neighbor. Our hope is that the donations category will continue to grow in 2022.
