Leadership Experience

During 2013 the Chapter implemented a series of workshops for members to aid with professional development and to examine and suggest solutions for issues facing the Chapter as a whole as well as particular subsets. Workshops were held in Baton Rouge and New Orleans (Kenner), and approximately twenty members participated.
