Laying the Foundation for a Strong Local Economy

Does Housing Pay Its Way?

Tuesday, March 20 | Noon | The Hilton Lafayette

Keynote Speaker: Elliott Eisenberg,Elliott Eisenberg, Senior Economist. National Home Builders Association





Acadiana has remained resilient to the national economic downturn, bolstered in part by the strength of the local home building industry. Analysts everywhere use residential construction as a leading indicator of economic vitality, so what can we learn from local trends about the years ahead in our own market?

Economist Elliott Eisenberg returns to Lafayette with a new economic impact study with up-to-date numbers on this bellwether business, just commissioned by The Acadiana Home Builders Association. From its impact on community planning and development to funding for public infrastructure, Eisenberg's report-and entertaining presentation-will bring a fresh look at industry trends in homebuilding here at home.

In addition to this presentation, the report will be published in-paper and online in The Independent on March 21.

Tickets: $40 per person or $350 for a premium reserved table for eight

Luncheon is Tuesday, March 20 at The Hilton Lafayette. For luncheon reservations, contact Robin Hebert: robinh@theind.com or by phone at 337.769.8603.


Presented in cooperation with Acadiana Home Builders Association
