North Carolina Beach, Inlet & Waterway Association
The One Effective Voice for
the North Carolina Coast ™

We are working on behalf of North Carolina's coast, and those who love it, by seeking to

  • encourage goverment action and funding,
  • educate and advocate for effective Federal and State policy, and
  • facilitate environmentally sound scientific and engineering solutions

for our threatened beaches, inlets and waterways.

Our coastal resources are under attack because of governmental policies that have abandoned our inlets, beaches, and waterways. Our recent organizational changes are a positive step in reducing duplication of efforts by splintered coastal interest groups and in strengthening the influence of a unified NCBIWA.

Our challenge to represent the entire coast has been expanded to cover all sand management issues, our standing as a resource for our elected officials has been elevated, and our mission to speak as the One Effective Voice for the North Carolina Coast has grown into a roar that cannot be ignored.
