About the Program

The Greater Shreveport Chamber’s Annual Meeting is one of our Premier events. Held each January, our new executive officers are installed for the Board of Directors and the annual Business Person of the Year Award is presented to a local business leader who has made significant contributions to the development of the community.
​This prestigious evening event also reflects on the previous year’s accomplishments and the current year’s vision.
