Vol. 18: Thank You


Thank You

GNO, Inc. recently held its annual meeting: “GNO 2.0 – The Economic Evolution.” An audience of over 1,000 business and community leaders from across the region enjoyed rousing welcoming remarks from New Orleans Mayor-Elect Mitch Landrieu; a keynote from Brian McGowan of the Federal Economic Development Administration; details on the year past and year ahead from GNO, Inc.; remarks from retiring and in-coming Chairs Marty Mayer and Jim Hudson; a special video; and even a surprise appearance by the “Category Five” General, Russel Honore.

Thank you to everyone who made this event possible. Thank you to everyone who is driving The Economic Evolution. We look forward to a great year together.
