Executive Director Update


On behalf of the board of the Greater New Orleans Breastfeeding Awareness Coalition, I would like to thank all of our many champions. Without the faithful support of our board, membership, interns, volunteers, and donors, we would not be able to reach the community as we have been able to do this year. I am thrilled to announce that GNOBAC has increased our Breastfeeding Welcome Here pledges by 150 this year, which means that many more businesses are being properly educated on breastfeeding rights. To date, we have over 350 signed pledges.  What a wonderful success!

In 2013, Jennifer Macias accepted the position of Program Manager/Executive Director of GNOBAC, and we have seen much growth and many accomplishments under her committed service to our organization. It is with mixed emotion that we announce that she has accepted a new employment opportunity, and will be stepping down from her position on September 15, 2017. Jennifer will continue working with the community as a Community Outreach Program Manager with Ochsner Health Systems. Although we are saddened to see her go, I know that we all wish her great success in her future endeavors, and have every faith that she will continue to advocate for breastfeeding rights.
