Where We Began:

REGIONALISM WORKS: 

2012 .... 2016


Regionalism Works, the first phase of North Louisiana Economic Partnership’s (NLEP) capital campaign, was a strong beginning to a proven economic development initiative that works. Bolstered by combined resources and a unified vision, the Regionalism Works capital campaign funded a better, more productive approach to achieve a more vibrant and diverse regional economy — and a better quality of life for all who live and work here.

REGIONALISM IS WORKING: THERE’S STRENGTH IN NUMBERS


Since 2012, NLEP has joined forces with companies across the region to expand and generate new business.

4,620 direct new jobs created.

More than $1.3 billion in direct capital investment generated.

14 parishes with nearly 819,000 residents working together.


REGIONALISM WORKS 2.0: 

2017 .... 2021


OUR GOAL: $7.5 MILLION (OVER 5-YEAR PERIOD)

Our track record is proof — and the rankings for our region validate — that regionalism is working. The next five-year capital campaign called Regionalism Works 2.0 is themed REGIONALISM = RESULTS. Set to begin in 2017 and culminate in 2021, Regionalism Works 2.0 will build on our momentum, generating economic opportunities for existing and new b usinesses in North Louisiana. We will continue to strengthen our investor base in order to build a united, thriving North Louisiana.


VISION: 2.0 FOCUS

North Louisiana will be a thriving region—a destination for high-quality talent, innovative companies, and global investment.

With the adoption of our comprehensive, five-year strategic plan in 2014 to guide future economic growth, NLEP will focus resources and efforts around  a common vision and three primary goals:

A strong pipeline of talent to support current and future employers
