The 2019 Annual Banquet is set for January 17th, at the Cade Community Center. There are a lot of exciting things that happened in 2018, and this event provides us with an opportunity to reflect on the progress we've made as a community in the past year, showcase local businesses and people, and get excited for all that we will accomplish in the coming months. This event is a great networking opportunity, and a chance to meet with other local business owners and bring back your own ideas on how to improve your success and the community's. This year, attendees are in for quite an eventful evening, so grab your tickets now!


A silent auction will be held at the beginning of the program, where individuals can bid on gift baskets put together with local business' deals and items. If you are interested in contributing to the themed baskets, please contact the chamber office (337-364-1836).

A live auction will take place after the silent auction, with Senator Fred Mills officiating.

Our keynote speaker this year will be Chris Reis, former Saints safety who recovered the onside kick and led to the victory of the Saints at Super Bowl XLIV. His speech will touch on topics that "change the game" and inspire leaders to make bold steps in a positive direction.
