The following person is recommended to volunteer to serve as a Grants Review Panelist for the Arts Council New Orleans. Panelists will be expected to read grant applications online and to attend and participate in a panel meeting to determine funding recommendations. Panelists should have a strong, unbiased knowledge of the arts and be familiar with the community in which they live. Panelists must live in Orleans, Jefferson or Plaquemines Parishes. The panel will be chosen by the Arts Council New Orleans to reflect the geographic and ethnic make-up of the region, as well as reflect the communities served and the various the arts disciplines. Board members of the non-profit agencies are encouraged to volunteer. Employees of applying agencies are not eligible to serve on panels in which their grants are reviewed. It is understood that volunteering does not necessarily mean that the volunteer will be asked to serve.
