Louisiana's Cajun Bayou Tourism Board of Directors

Mission Statement
Our mission is to position Lafourche Parish as a regionally, nationally and internationally recognized year-round destination by developing quality marketing programs and promoting events that attract visitors and stimulate economic development and growth.

Vision Statement
Our vision is to be known as a top 10 tourism destination within the state of Louisiana. Lafourche Parish will have a visitor recognized brand as a culturally rich area with award-winning outdoor, historical and culinary attractions. Tourism will be a driving factor within the economy of the Parish.

Brand Promise
Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou, Lafourche Parish is just south of New Orleans, for adventurers seeking distinct authentic experiences and culture of the wetlands. It’s where a deep Cajun lifestyle is inspired, nurtured, and defined by the Bayou; so experiences are more personal and full of flavor.


Board of Directors
Louisiana's Cajun Bayou Tourism is governed by a nine-member board of directors. Each member is appointed by one of nine entities within Lafourche Parish and are elected to a three-year term on the board. The mission of the board of directors is to stimulate economic development by marketing Lafourche Parish as a destination for tourists.
