Founded in 2013, this is a private, member-based organization dedicated to promoting Sunset Beach commerce, entertainment, and tourism. Formerly named “Sunset Beach Business & Merchants Association,” we recently changed it to the “SB Business Guild.” We remain a 501c3 non-profit group of local business owners located in the beautiful coastal town of Sunset Beach, North Carolina in Brunswick County. Each of us hopes to be of service while you enjoy your time here, whether you stay for a short time, or a lifetime!
Our members consist of Businesses both on and off the island of Sunset Beach, other non-profit groups, sole proprietors, LLC’s, and corporations. All members and officers are located inside and around Sunset Beach NC, with our numbers growing each month. All board members and officers are active business owners who volunteer their time, pay full membership fees, and donate their personal efforts and resources to help promote Sunset Beach, North Carolina for everyone.
Regular membership is 1 calendar year, Jan 1 to Dec 31, at $200/yr/business. Of course, joining us in the 2nd, 3rd or 4th quarters begets you a prorated membership fee instead.
Officers’ term lengths are 2 years (2018-19, 2020-21, etc.), all must adhere to the official Bylaws of SBBG and each seat title is: President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and 5 to 7 Board of Directors seats. Currently, the officers and board of directors are:
