Whither Shreveport and its ebbing population? Time for attorneys and professors to offer ideas. From LSUS, an agency that should certainly have a central role in helping cope with population trends, comes a "Conference is Timely Based on Recent Buzz Created by Shreveport Times Article on Population Challenges for the City of Shreveport."

Says Neil Erwin, "In hopes of organizing North Louisiana around critical growth management issues centered on land use and real estate development, LSUS will host the First Annual Upstate Louisiana Land Use Planning & Real Estate Development Law Conference on Friday, Aug 24."

The conference will feature speakers from throughout Louisiana including Neil Erwin, Shreveport attorney and conference chair, John Good, commercial real estate developer, and Mike Woods, attorney and board member of the Louisiana Recovery Authority. Two LSUS people will also make presentations: Gary Joiner, Ph.D., LSUS assistant professor and director of Red River Regional Studies Center, and Susannah O. Stinson, attorney and associate vice chancellor for University Development.

9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the LSUS Technology Center Room 209.
$249 per participant or $199 per person for three or more from the same firm/agency. or 318-798-4177.
