After rounds of private meetings with various constituent groups, the day will culminate with a 5:30 p.m. public reception in the Clarion Inn & Suites Conference Center, located at 1051 US 165 in Monroe.
At 6:15 p.m., the Northeast Louisiana edition of the Democratic Exchange will take place. This event will also be held in the Clarion Inn & Suites Conference Center.
The Democratic Exchanges are a standard feature of the Days of the Democrats project, giving party leaders, lawmakers and every day Democrats the opportunity to discuss the issues of the day in an informal setting.

The party will compile, assess and synthesize the information gathered on these ventures to provide party members a common set of facts, common data and a shared vocabulary with which will serve as the basis for the formulation of future party strategy and platforms.
