The rains and flooding that inundated the region in mid-August caused no damage to the LSU campus and downtown Baton Rouge properties. Our meeting space and hotel options are unaffected, so please make plans to attend.
All sessions and breaks will be held on the LSU campus in the Design Building:
Louisiana State University
Baton Rouge, LA 70802
For your convenience, both an interactive Google map and a PDF campus map are available. See the map images to the right. Parking is free and all lots will be open.
