The Carolina Beach Inlet Association (CBIA) educates the public and politicians on the importance of keeping North Carolina’s Shallow Draft Inlets dredged for safe navigation. Support for CBIA is vital to the ongoing preservation of the Carolina Beach inlets and the economic value it brings to both property values and economic business impact.

Your support enables us to:

  • Organize the organization, its membership, committees and a board of directors.
  • Secure a venue for Monthly Membership Meetings, Committee Meetings, and Board Meetings, once a month.
  • Put on fund-raising events such as The Annual Chowder Cook-Off and other events through the year.
  • Attend other non-profit's & charitable events who invite us to set up a tent and promote the efforts of the CBIA.
  • offset the cost of of Member expenses to attend meetings being held across the state by the State of NC, Division of Water Resources and Marine Fisheries.
