You haven’t been to a business networking event until you have attended the Bossier Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Gala, which boasts nearly 700 business professionals all in one place for the business party of the year.

The event, presented by Clay Young Enterprises, will also serve as a night for 2016 business awards to be presented to Bossier Chamber members, including the coveted Business of the Year and Business Person of the Year awards, which are sponsored by JP Morgan Chase.

Outgoing Chairman of the Board David Specht Jr. will pass the gavel to 2017 incoming Chair Terry Moore and new board members will be recognized as we also look forward to what the coming year will bring to northwest Louisiana.
