North Shore Focus scheduled May 14 at Capitol
North Shore Focus, a regionally-hosted gathering with state legislators, will be held at the Louisiana Capitol Tuesday, May 14, from 9 to 4 p.m.
This year's schedule includes informal briefings and updates from elected officials and legislators on healthcare, higher education, transportation and parish priorities from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Clairborne Building Marbois Room. A mix and mingle follows at noon until 3 p.m. at the Capitol Rotunda. Barry Erwin of CABL (Council for a Better Louisiana) will cap off the day with his presentation of "Political Theater 101: Grand Drama at the Capitol" at 3 p.m. in the Capitol Senate Committee Room C.
This is the 10-year anniversary for the collaborative advocacy event, designed to provide area business leaders with an opportunity to visit with legislators from across the state and present the North Shore region's legislative priorities, said Erin Cowser, Southeastern executive director of public and governmental affairs and Hammond Chamber of Commerce executive committee member. There is no cost to attend the event.
"Legislators tell us it makes their jobs that much easier when they're presented with collective plans and priorities," she said. "While each parish may have its specific needs and wants, collectively as a region, what's good for Tangipahoa is good for Livingston, what's good for Washington is good for St. Tammany, and vice versa."
As a true reflection of the state's fastest growing region, Cowser said the event's list of co-hosts continues to grow with representation of a fifth parish included this year. Co-hosts include the Livingston Economic Development Council, Livingston Chamber of Commerce, Livingston Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau, and St. Helena Parish Economic Development.
From St. Tammany Parish are the East St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce, St. Tammany Economic Development Foundation, St. Tammany Parish Tourist and Convention Commission, and St. Tammany West Chamber of Commerce.
Representing Tangipahoa Parish are the Amite Chamber of Commerce, Hammond Chamber of Commerce, Hammond Area Economic and Industrial Development District, Ponchatoula Chamber of Commerce, Southeast Louisiana Business Center, Tangipahoa Economic Development Foundation and the Tangipahoa Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Washington Parish co-hosts include the Franklinton Chamber of Commerce and Washington Economic Development Foundation.
Northshore Technical Community College Alumni and the Southeastern Louisiana University Alumni Association, as well as the Northshore Legislative Alliance, are also regional partners.
Chamber members and representatives of the business community are encouraged to attend. For more information, contact the individual chamber offices or the Southeastern Alumni Association at 549-2150.
Vehicle registration goes online for Southeastern students
Southeastern students can now register their vehicle information online rather than having to register in person in order to purchase parking permits.
That's well received information for most students.
"I am glad to see vehicle registration moving to an online process," said sophomore Victoria McCarson of LaPlace. "This will make the process much faster and easier than having to wait in a line and physically out a form."
According to the Parking Department, students will need to complete the vehicle registration online prior to being issued a vehicle permit. This should be done prior to setting foot on campus for registration purposes.
To register online, students should log onto their Leonet account, go to self-serve and select vehicle registration. Select the appropriate term from the list, then select the type of vehicle and insert the requested information. After submission, this will add the parking fee onto students' Leonet account.
The Parking Department will issue permits in the fall semester at the University Center until after the second day classes begin and then move to the Parking Office, located in Pride Hall. During the spring and summer semesters, permits will be issued at the Parking Office only.
Students who need to register an additional vehicle, request a replacement decal or make a change, should review the parking rules and regulations at the University Police Department web page at www.southeastern.edu/admin/police or call the Parking Office during business hours at 549-5695.
Alumni Association Tangi Chapter hosts shrimp boil on May 17
The Tangi Chapter of the Southeastern Alumni Association is inviting alumni and friends to a shrimp boil on May 17.
Back by popular demand, it will be held at the Alumni Center and return to its original day of Friday. The event will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Soft drinks will be provided, as well as corn, potatoes, hamburgers and desserts.
“We invite everyone to end the week with good food, good company and fun” said Alumni Director Kathy Pittman. “We have timed it so you can leave work, enjoy the shrimp and still have time to relax and get ready for the rest of the weekend.”
The cost is $12 per person in advance or $15 at the door. Advance registration is preferred. Free hamburgers will be provided for children under 12.
Participants may prepay and register online at www.southeastern.edu/alumni or call 549-2150.
