We hope you'll take advantage of our offerings and look forward to working together to improve the business climate of the River Region.
Thank you for your continued support of your local Chamber.
We have just begun a new year and optimism is very high in the River Parishes. Last year was a very trying time as we dealt with a very slow economy, a major oil spill and severe cuts in the state budget. All of this was handled by you with your usual enthusiasm, and your Chamber was always there as your unified voice addressing these concerns.
As your Chairman, I expect this year to be an outstanding year as we have assembled a dynamic group of committee chairs committed to improving the economy of the River Parishes and addressing your needs. Public Policy will be focusing on federal as well as state and local legislative issues to improve the business climate in the River Region.
Business Development will be working with the parishes’ economic development offices in their quest to help existing businesses grow, as well as attract new businesses. Membership Committee will be concentrating on “customer satisfaction.” Events Committee is planning several quality events during the year that meet your needs for networking, education, socializing and just having fun.
I urge you to consider getting involved with one of these committees to participate in the excitement. I promise that you will be challenged and appreciated.
I look forward to partnering with you in continuing the work of this great Chamber.
