About the organizer
Jekyll Island Authority
Recognizing that Jekyll Island’s natural beauty and vibrant history set it apart from any other coastal retreat, the Governor and the Georgia State Legislature established the island as a state park and entrusted its care to the Jekyll Island Authority (JIA). The Jekyll Island Authority is a self-supporting state agency responsible for the overall management and stewardship of Jekyll Island. Our mission: As stewards of Jekyll Island’s past, present and future, we’re dedicated to maintaining the delicate balance between nature and humankind. JIA has set up parameters to protect the island’s ecosystem while ensuring it remains an inviting destination for guests. We oversee the conservation, development, and management of Jekyll Island, and rely on operating revenues from leases, fees, and island amenity operations. Jekyll Island does not receive any tax revenues for its operation.
