2014 Policy Forum

Our 2014 Policy Forum continued our dialogue around planning for the historic industrial boom in South Louisiana.

Our distinguished panel of speakers focused on the emerging issues and opportunities that face us as we begin to experience rapid growth associated with industrial expansion. Ideas for leveraging synergies throughout the Baton Rouge-to-New Orleans Super Region helped audience members understand the importance of connecting our economies and infrastructure to strengthen our region and improve the lives of residents throughout South Louisiana for the long term.
