Being Brunswick  gives a  behind the  scenes look at our  local  business community and  the  jobs they do everyday. Messy, difficult, entertaining or creative, Being Brunswick covers it all. Each month features different businesses with host Shannon Viera documenting it all the way. 

Featured July Businesses: Windowz Inc. Planetarium

The Chamber Chicks bring the fun every month..... whether it's singing about the next upcoming event or sharing what's new at the chamber, they sing it in style (or at least they try to!)

Check out our Building Brunsco Kids Expo Vendors getting excited for the event!

This month's Ambassador Meeting theme was "Charlie's Angels". Check out the Chamber Chicks in a throw back to the 70's.....

The ambassador program has helped me in my career. I’m a business solutions consultant for ATMC. Being active in the chamber exposes me to all businesses and ties in the community support that is vital to ATMC and the chamber. I’m thrilled to be involved with such a vibrant and active Chamber.

Brought to you by the South Brunswick Business Development Committee The South Brunswick Business Development Committee is a group of business people committed to supporting the economic development of Brunswick County, one of the fastest growing counties in the country. The committee services the community by providing workforce and economic data, as well as resources and education for businesses.

The population of Brunswick County between 2002 and 2016 grew 62% versus a national average of approximately 1%. The greatest contributor was migration from other areas of the county. Population at the end of 2016 was 125,953 Brunswick County is once again the fastest growing county in the state. It is interesting to note is that the growth in Brunswick County is made up of predominantly non-native residents, meaning they have moved to North Carolina from another state or country.
