BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Structure:

The Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation (GNOSF), a nonprofit corporation, was created in 1988 to bring together sports minded people who devote a portion of their time, energy and financial support to the development of sports tourism and related industries in the Greater New Orleans area. GNOSF facilitates exchange among members of information, ideas and support necessary to attract and assist in the coordination and production of sports events in this area.

Board Membership:

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors, which has general supervision of the business affairs and activities of GNOSF. Our Board is made up of business and community leaders, industry experts, professionals and other supporters of the organization. An Executive Committee is elected to oversee the day-to-day operations of the organization and its employees.

Participation:

Board members contribute significantly to our success by serving on specific event committees and volunteering.

In 2001, the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation created and is financially responsible for the annual R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl. In 2003, the GNOSF Board of Directors unanimously approved a resolution to have a Sports Foundation/New Orleans Bowl combined membership program and that each GNOSF board member must also have a membership in good standing.

The GNOSF membership includes a choice of three levels of financial support. The diversity in pricing offers support opportunities to all types of individuals and/or companies and includes annual benefits from both the Sports Foundation and the Bowl. If you have questions about the membership program please contact Tricia Lowe at 525-5678 or tlowe@gnosf.org
