March Happenings

Publisher’s Note

This month starts with a packed luncheon for the New Orleans Chamber. On Friday, March 1, at the New Orleans Marriott on Canal Street, Sandra Lombana Lindquist and her team have assembled a list of speakers from the Governor’s New Orleans Transition Council. The speakers will provide an update on their recommendations and progress to help guide the legislative agenda on crime and economic conditions in New Orleans.

Speaking of legislative session, the regular state session will convene at noon on March 11, and adjourn at 6 p.m. on June 3. So, the Jefferson Chamber’s annual legislative breakfast is Thursday, March 7, at the Hilton New Orleans Airport. The keynote speakers are Will Green, CEO of Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI), and Michael Hecht, CEO of GNO, Inc., who will present on their supporting agenda items for the upcoming session. Also in attendance are members of the Jefferson Parish delegation who will “pass the mic” on their specific legislative items as well.

The month ends with Easter Sunday, but before that Biz New Orleans will host another session of Biz Leaders. If you are looking to grow your leadership skills, join us on March 22, from 8 a.m. to noon as national EOS implementer Matt Hahne leads a Launching Leaders session designed to help you continue your professional growth.
