Northeast Louisiana Opportunity, a branding project to promote Northeast Louisiana, will unveil its latest marketing initiatives to promote communities in our region for economic development, workforce recruitment and to improve pride in place. The event billed as a Premiere Party will rally our community to support a better quality of life and to help share the good news coming from Northeast Louisiana.

Northeast Louisiana Opportunity is a coalition of community partners from Ouachita, Lincoln, Union and Morehouse Parishes that came together in 2013 to develop solutions to recruit and retain a workforce, to support our employers, to combat the misperceptions of our region, to stem the outmigration of our best and brightest and to improve our pride in place.
