Members of the St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce, including business, civic and elected leaders from across St. Tammany, traveled to Washington Mardi Gras to represent the fourth-largest parish in Louisiana.

At the request of Senator Kennedy, the St. Tammany Chamber co-hosted the Economic Development Luncheon with the Monroe Chamber with nearly 900 elected, business, economic development and chamber leaders in attendance.

In addition, the Chamber led a group of Northshore leaders in organizing and hosting the St. Tammany Parish reception attended by 150 business and elected leaders from round our region. Themed “It’s a Shore Thing,” the reception was made possible by sponsors, including St. Tammany Parish Government, Acquistapace’s, Gulf Coast Bank and Trust Company, Kyle Associates and Pat Gallagher’s Rest Awhile.

“Hosting these events during Washington Mardi Gras is a great opportunity to showcase St. Tammany,” said St. Tammany Chamber’s President and CEO Lacey Osborne, adding “Participating in this four-day event enables our business leaders to connect with other business owners, local, state and federal officials, talk policy and build relationships.”

“Nowhere have I traveled in my 40 years of doing business could my wife Cathy and I personally connect, learn, have fun and expand our business and personal footprints than this amazing event,” said St. Tammany Chamber Board Member and Gulf States Real Estate Services President Mike Saucier.
