I've been a member of LIDEA since 2006 and I could not be more satisfied with the value of my membership. It provides me with the ability to network with other economic development professionals from throughout the state and I cherish the personal relationships which were born through LIDEA. My membership also ignited a desire within me to pursue a certification in Economic Development which I completed in the inaugural class of Certified Louisiana Economic Developers in 2011. LIDEA is my lifeline to all economic development news throughout the state and I’m delighted to be a member.
