Draft Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan cover image (draft)

The Louisiana Chapter executive committee has been working to update the Strategic Plan for our chapter. This process is required every five years. A draft of the document has been posted where you may read and comment on it. We encourage you to review this 11 page document within the next two weeks - preferably by March 16th so that we can make revisions in time for the next executive committee meeting where it can be adopted.

Welcome New Officers

New Officers 2018

Responding to trends and opportunities and to member feedback, the slate of Executive Officers has been expanded to include a Vice President and an Outreach and Advocacy Officer. This is based on revisions to our Chapter bylaws adopted October 20, 2017.
