4Q 2023 President’s Message – Lauren Snider, MAI


As 2023 comes to a close, I want to thank you for allowing me to serve as your 2023 Chapter President.

The chapter held five in-person classes this year which attracted members from across the state in addition to a large number from out-of-state and non-members. We also had a 4Q Chapter Business Meeting at Juban’s several weeks ago for the installation of the 2024 officers which had a good attendance.

In 2023, the Chapter had one new designated member – Nicholas Gambino, MAI. Two existing MAIs also achieved additional designations: Evan Himel with the SRA designation and Sean McDonald with the AI-GRS designation. The Chapter currently has 115 Designated Members along with 14 Candidates for Designation, 34 Practicing Affiliates, and 3 Affiliates.

Thank you to Nancy Linton-Hall as our Executive Director for all of her help and assistance.

Please contact me if you are interested in becoming more involved with the Chapter. We are looking for members to serve on boards and committees along with volunteering in other roles. Participating is a great networking opportunity both personally and professionally.

2023 Louisiana Chapter President
