2016 Fall Conference Presentations
The technical session agenda featured 23 unique presentations cover-ing a wide range of topics and presenters. The Association collected donations of $500 and matched this amount to make a $1,000 donation to the Ba-ton Rouge Area Foundation Flood Relief Fund to help victims of this year’s catastrophic flood event.
The 10th annual Fall Conference will be moving to a new location in 2017. More information will be coming in the spring. We will be sending out information about the Spring Seminars/Workshops in a couple of months. If you have any feedback or suggestions on how we can improve the conference next year, please let us know. Thank you for your continued support of our events.
