North Louisiana Economic Partnership (NLEP), an Accredited Regional Economic Development Organization, will showcase Ruston and Monroe to an influential group of national site selectors during our 2016 NLEP Site Selectors Familiarization Tour from September 20th to 22nd.
Site selectors assist companies with their decisions on where to locate or to expand their operations.
The five site selectors touring Monroe and Ruston have worked with Fortune 500 companies, such as Target, Nestle, Best Buy, Gardner Denver Thomas and Disney. They significantly influence their client company’s corporate decisions about where to locate their operations.
During the familiarization tour of Ruston and Monroe, the site selectors will hear first-hand from regional companies about our workforce and business climate and meet with key political and business leaders.
The site selectors will receive a comprehensive overview of opportunities and programs in our region as well as visit CenturyLink.
Site selectors visited Monster Moto, Louisiana Tech University and Grambling State University on Wednesday, September 21.
