The entire GEB team was on pins and needles for weeks, wondering what was in store for them... They were simply told in teaser emails to dress casually, that lunch would be served and to turn on their out of office replies. Well it turns out that they were in for a beautiful day of team-building and relaxation on the Jourdan River in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.

In 2015, employees of GEB spent two weekends fixing up the exterior of the Gentilly home of Mrs. Eleanor Sheppard. The GEB team repaired siding, painted the home's exterior and built safe steps. Before retiring, Sheppard taught business education at Abramson High School. Sheppard has lived in the house, which she inherited from her mother and father, for 25 years. The effort was through Rebuilding Together New Orleans, whose mission is to allow low-income families to live in safety, warmth and dignity.

GEB associates enjoyed a fun night of bowling at the IIAGNO (Independent Insurance Agents of Greater New Orleans) 5th Annual Company Appreciation Night at Rock-N-Bowl.

GEB is a big fan of the New Orleans Saints! Each year, GEB hosts a Tailgate Party for employees and clients at the GEB office, which is conveniently located directly across Poydras St. from the Superdome. Everyone sports their finest black and gold attire, as they mix and mingle, watch pre-game reports on TV, and enjoy delicious food and beverages. It is typically held on the day of a weekday home game.
