On Thursday, March 26, 2015, Pelican Chapter, ABC hosted its first quarter Industrial Contractors Council Luncheon at the Renaissance Hotel in Baton Rouge, LA. As the oil and gas industry continues to have a tremendous “IMPACT” on the state’s economy, it was impeccable timing to invite economist Dr. Loren C. Scott to be the keynote speaker at this event. Offering his perspective and analysis on the oil and gas trends, issues and opportunities that are impacting the energy industry, Dr. Scott’s presentation addressed several key questions circulating the global oil market. As quoted by Bill Owens, “A strong economy begins with a strong, well-educated workforce”. On behalf of Pelican Chapter, ABC and its members, we extend our gratitude to Dr. Loren C. Scott for sharing his wisdom of the economy and providing us with a better understanding of how the oil and gas industry boom is fueling economic growth and changing America.
