Community Advisory Councils

The Port of New Orleans hosts two Community Advisory Councils (CACs) that meet regularly. The meetings involve project updates, discussions about terminal-related subjects, and opportunities for members to provide feedback and insight. One CAC consists of Violet residents and community leaders. The other consists of community and business leaders from throughout St. Bernard Parish. CAC members were nominated by community and local government leaders.

If you’re interested in joining one of the Community Advisory Councils, please visit our Community Connection Office in Violet.

As containerized import volumes continue to steadily climb, due in part to Port NOLA’s investment in four new ship to shore container cranes, throughput efficiency (the number of containers that pass-through Port NOLA in a given timeframe) also continues to be high.
