Enjoy fabulous local food at lunch and our dinner receptions, plus 3-days of hot breakfast and a signature New Orleans lunch on both Friday and Saturday. Conference guests are welcome for all evening events. Our Coffeehouse returns, again this year just outside the meeting rooms offering snacks during the day. You do want some gumbo or bisque, right?
