2013 Super Region Canvas
The 2013 Super Region Canvas: A Benchmarking Workshop will be an inaugural joint-venture between the Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) and Greater New Orleans, Inc. (GNO, Inc.) to travel* to the Tampa Area and Metro Orlando, more commonly known as Central Florida, from November 3-5, 2013 to learn best practices from the individual cities and the region which can be implemented by the Super Region Committee (SRC) and the leaders of each region. The Super Region Committee (SRC) works to foster cooperation for mutual economic benefit between the Baton Rouge Area and Greater New Orleans. A delegation of business and community leaders from the SRC will spend three days and two nights learning from a region that has made significant progress in areas such as super-regionalism, digital media, health care, crime, and international trade. We hope you join us for this exciting workshop!
Canvas on the Move
Baton Rouge area leaders have traveled to several great American cities/regions as a part of the Baton Rouge Area Canvas Workshop to reflect upon important policy issues facing our community and learn how the destination region addresses similar matters. Past Canvas Workshops to Austin, Nashville, Raleigh-Durham, Portland, Richmond, Pittsburgh, and Louisville have exposed participants to a wide range of ideas and practices for economic and community development. Equally important, the trips have created new networks among business and civic leaders in the Capital Region—connections vital for implementing lessons learned upon return to the Baton Rouge area.

*Attendees will travel to Central Florida via a chartered flight departing from and returning to Baton Rouge (BTR).
