December 2017
Dear Members and Friends,

In 2017 the Growth Coalition helped achieve several important issues in the development community. The credit for this goes to our dedicated Board of Directors, and our membership.

The Baton Rouge Growth Coalition strives to give our members a voice, along with valuable information on the constant change and growth in the Capital Region. Thank you for all your input this year!

We look forward to seeing you in 2018! Have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Thank you,

Larry S. Bankston
Executive Director
