Description


The Greater New Orleans, Inc. NextGen Council and Gulf Coast Bank & Trust invite all young professionals from the 10-parish region to join us for a series of policy forums that address some of the most critical challenges facing our state.

Join us for one session, or all!

Policy Forum #1: Louisiana’s Tax System: How We Got Here and the Path Forward
September 11, 2018 * Noon - 1:30 PM * Lunch Provided
Louisiana’s financial challenges remain unresolved despite numerous attempts to remedy problems and avoid slashing key services and/or resorting to stop-gap solutions. This forum will look back at how Louisiana created its current tax structure in the 1970s, and how insufficient piecemeal revisions have added to the challenges we face today, and the right model for going forward.
Speakers include State Rep. Julie Stokes, State Rep. Walt Leger III, and Michael Hecht of GNO, Inc.

Policy Forum #2: Louisiana’s Business Environment: From Laggard to Leader
September 25, 2018 * Noon - 1:30 PM * Lunch Provided
With an abundance of natural resources and homegrown talent, why does Louisiana lag behind the nation in so many categories? This forum will provide an overview of how Louisiana’s business environment compares to that of other states, the reasons for deficiencies, and what must be done to enhance our economic competitiveness.
Speakers include Jonathan Kozy - Senior Research Analyst at U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management, Jason DeCuir - Principal at Ryan, and Michael Hecht of GNO, Inc.

Policy Forum #3: Fixing LA: The 2019 Opportunity
October 9, 2018 * Noon - 1:30 PM * Lunch Provided
With one third of the Louisiana legislature turning over in 2019, Louisiana will have a special opportunity to elect leadership with the wherewithal, mandate and support for change. This forum will address the primary issues new candidates should prioritize and how the business community can help identify and support quality candidates.
Speakers include Clancy Dubos - Political Analyst, Greg Rigamer of BDPC LLC, and Michael Hecht of GNO, Inc.

Policy Forum #4: Federal Policy Deep-Dive With Majority Whip Steve Scalise
October 30, 2018 * 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM * Refreshments Provided
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise will join us for an update on federal policy. As well, this forum will include detailed discussion around GNO, Inc.’s top federal priorities including NFIP reform, and trade policy.
Speakers include House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Michael Hecht of GNO, Inc., and Caitlin Berni of Berni Consulting.
