A Division Executive Committee was formed in May of 1988, the squadron began functioning, and an official charter was granted by the United States Power Squadrons on 19 May 1990. Joe Huber was the first commander of the squadron. The squadron changed its name to “Shallotte River Sail & Power Squadron” in 2002.
