Description

DESCRIPTION

Join League members from across Louisiana at our biennial convention and become more engaged and empowered in our united mission to improve our state. The theme in 2019 is “Education in Louisiana: Children are Our Future.” A workshop will feature presentations by Melanie Bronfin, executive director, Louisiana Policy Institute for Children; Douglas N. Harris, director, The Education Research Alliance for New Orleans; and Jan Moller, executive director, Louisiana Budget Project. A proposed new LWVLA policy position, resulting from an in-depth study of Louisiana charter schools, will be discussed and voted on.

New Orleans State Sen. J. P. Morrell will keynote the conference banquet (included in the registration fee), which will be held at The Palace Café on Saturday evening. Guests are welcome.

Reduced hotel rates are available for Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Royal St. Charles Hotel (see below). Come enjoy a fun weekend in New Orleans while becoming better informed, electing a new state board and networking with other League members who work every day to advance our cause for better government—and governance—in Louisiana!
