School Is In

It’s September, which means parents across the Southeast are rejoicing in the start of another school year. The kids? Maybe not so much. But for our cover person this month, Caitlin Cain, school is always in session.

Since accepting the position of CEO of the World Trade Center of New Orleans earlier this year, Cain has been leading the organization that serves as the trusted source for Louisiana export data and whose Trade Services Department provides valuable trade-specific research, consulting and education to members and non-members alike all year long.

Speaking of learning, there’s a lot to learn about in this issue, including things like how the fiduciary standard could affect your finances — especially if you invest with a broker-dealer — and how a new law called the Louisiana Music Industry Investment Act is seeking to provide local musicians with the resources and support they need to monetize their talent, while providing Louisiana with a new stream of income.

We’re also excited to have Allison Plyer with the Data Center return for their quarterly column with insight on how we can ensure the jobs created by the Louisiana Coastal Master Plan can have real staying power.

Following a summer that unfortunately was not lacking in both natural and man-made challenges, we also look at things like how local professionals are working to divert stormwater, what to do in a company crisis, how to handle a bad email exchange and how Southeast Louisiana as a region can capitalize on the strengths of our local workforce.

As always, if there’s something, or someone, you’d like to learn more about, please let us know.

Happy Reading,
