As a boom in industrial and commercial investment is anticipated along the Baton Rouge-to-New Orleans corridor, transportation infrastructure and planning issues are more pressing than ever. Connecting workers to training and employment opportunities, and connecting employers and businesses to the labor and markets they depend on are essential to ensuring that the benefits of growth are shared and sustainable, and quality of life is improved for all.
This year’s Policy Forum hopes to launch a multi-sector dialogue that will give voice to stakeholder priorities and create a template for regional collaboration around shared infrastructure needs.
The Forum is Thursday, May 29th at the Pennington Biomedical Conference Center. Registration is $50 and includes lunch.
