Innovation, Unity, Outreach: The Keystones of Educational Opportunity

The LASAP Annual Conference Committee extends an enthusiastic invitation to join us in celebrating a return to “Louisiana’s other side,” Shreveport and Bossier City.

We are excited to announce that our annual conference will be held at Diamond Jacks Resort during the days of March 17-20, 2014.

In addition to the excellent guest speakers and professional development, there will be no shortage of fellowship and fun.  If you are the type of person who prefers not to leave the comforts of your hotel, you can wind down in the deluxe whirlpool tub included in every room, enjoy a meal in one of the famed on-property restaurants.

For those looking for a more active hotel experience, you can work out in a state of the art fitness facility, enjoy the thrill of gaming, or even get a tattoo, on-site.

For the more adventurous attendees, a hotel shuttle will provide easy transportation to the plethora of activities Shreveport-Bossier has to offer. The shopper will be overwhelmed with the Louisiana Boardwalk. Overlooking the beautiful Red River, it is the largest center for stores, art, entertainment and dining in all of Louisiana. Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center and a number of other museums that feature everything from railroad history to sports will keep intellectuals and history buffs busy. Of course, the creatively inclined will enjoy the numerous art galleries and one of the best “art house” independent movie theaters in the south.

Mark your calendars and be prepared to join the Louisiana TRIO family in Shreveport-Bossier for what we anticipate being a fulfilling conference.
