There will be a national welcome/introduction call on Sunday, January 13 at 4pm EST.

We are excited to report that Louisiana is seeing growth in our chapter numbers. We have two entirely new chapters coming online already in 2017 in Monroe and Ruston-Grambling!

Our goal this year is to make sure that all of our members who live in and close to these represented cities will be affiliated with the chapter nearest them so they easily collaborate locally.

Take a look at the list to find which chapter will serve you best: (emails for the newer chapters will be added soon!)

Baton Rouge:  LA0116  (

Monroe: LA0200

New Orleans:  LA0300  (
