As you saw over the weekend, Governor John Bel Edwards was re-elected for a second term. This is great news for us. He has been a steadfast supporter of our industry and knows the impact film has on local communities across our state.
We look forward to our continued work with his administration and Louisiana Economic Development in making our program more viable, predictable, and stable for our residents, crew, talent, and students.
Also, of note - we have a new group of legislators that we will have to educate about the benefits of our program and the impact it brings to the state. Members of our executive board as well as our lobbying team are already setting up meetings with these legislators.
Our annual member meeting will take place on Sunday, December 15th. Once we have a location and time firmed up, we will send out more information. This is your opportunity to meet with members of our industry and our board and get a state of the industry report from our LFEA Executive Board.
Go ahead and mark your calendars now and I hope to see you there!
