Back to Work
Mardi Gras is now behind us and French Quarter and Jazz Fest are up ahead, so March is the month things have to happen.
This month Idea Village and the Tulane Freeman School of Business will again co-produce New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW) presented by JP Morgan Chase & Co. Now in its 12th year, this year’s lineup looks terrific and many of the business groups I am involved with have partnered with NOEW to host events. Register and check out the full schedule at NOEW.org.
In government, the Louisiana legislative regular session starts March 9. I hope this year we can come together and help the state fix some old problems that continue to hold us back. I’m sure the real work will wait till May, as the session ends June 1 at 6 p.m.
Other events happening this month include:
Jefferson Chamber Legislative Breakfast
Urban Conservancy Urban Heroes Luncheon
YouthForce NOLA with JA and GNO, Inc. Career Expo at UNO
Tulane Family Business Forum
New Orleans Chamber Women’s Leadership Conference
JEDCO & Jefferson Chamber Prosper Jefferson
The start of spring is March 19, so let the good weather bring everyone out and networking. See you around New Orleans.
