It is with much enthusiasm I, on the behalf of The TECHE Project, introduce you to your new Administrator, Erin Z. Bass. You will have the pleasure of meeting Erin in person at our Annual Membership Banquet in Breaux Bridge on January 25th 2020. But until then, here’s a little about her.
Erin is a native of Crowley and has lived in Lafayette for close to 20 years. She has a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Louisiana State University and has spent the past 18 years working as a writer and editor. Her career experience spans from newspapers and magazines to marketing and public relations. Her newspaper experience includes The Times of Acadiana, Independent Weekly and The Current. She also serves on the board of directors for Festival International de Louisiana.
Erin is no stranger to the Bayou Teche. She got married along the bayou in Arnaudville and has family living along the bayou in New Iberia. She has covered the Teche through her work with Discover Iberia magazine and the Louisiana Tour Guide.
As Administrator of The TECHE Project, Erin will utilize her communication, marketing and public relations skills to handle membership, the Annual Report and Annual Banquet, in addition to day to day administrative duties. As the paddle trail infrastructure (floating docks, kiosks) continues to hit the water in each Trail Town, making the whole trail easier to access, we anticipate Erin’s background and expertise becoming a critical asset to promoting the trail to attract more paddlers.
Thanks again for your continued support of our National Water Trail. See you at the banquet where we celebrate you and your contribution to the Bayou Teche and Lower Atchafalaya River.
See you on the water,
