Mission Statement

As trustworthy stewards, Jekyll Island State Park Authority shall conserve our natural and cultural resources through the use of revenues generated by providing services, programs, and amenities that maximize benefits to everyone on the island.

Description

Through an act of the state legislature, the Jekyll Island Authority was created to oversee the conservation and development of the Island. The Authority board consists of members appointed by the governor to serve four-year terms. The chairman of the board is also appointed by the governor to serve a one-year term.

According to state law, the Authority board consists of the Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources or his designee and eight residents of the state, two of whom reside in the coastal area.

The members of the board constitute the policy-making body of the Authority. They do not receive compensation for their services and are accountable in all respects as trustees for the island.

The Authority is a self-supporting body, obtaining its operating revenues from leases, park fees, and Island amenities. This income is used to maintain, develop, beautify, and promote the Island as a world-class vacation and meeting destination. Jekyll Island does not receive any tax revenues for its operation.

The Authority employs a full-time executive director who is responsible for the operation and promotion of the Island's amenities, and for providing certain public services to Island residents and businesses. The Authority is organized into four divisions; each managed by a senior director who reports to the executive director.
