Join us as Innovators!
On behalf of the more than 112,000 residents and over 900 chamber members, it is my pleasure to bring greetings to you and offer a few insights into what many of us know as the best place to work, live and play. Newcomers are drawn to Bossier Parish and the surrounding area, as many life-long residents and military retirees choose Bossier Parish for the same reasons that our business community continues to grow. Our mix of unique cultures — combining the rich Louisiana heritage with big Texas lifestyle and God’s country of Arkansas — gives the area its nickname, the Ark-La-Tex. Since the early 1950s, Bossier Parish has been one of the fastest-growing Parishes in the state of Louisiana. We are home to Barksdale Air Force Base — headquarters for the AF Global Strike Command, the “Mighty” Eighth Air Force and the 2nd and 307th Bomb Wings. BAFB adds strength and stability to the economy through its active duty and reserve personnel, their families, and a large and growing retiree base.
Bossier is an innovative, vibrant city/parish based on community partnerships and strong economic development leaders. Through our commitment to workforce development and education, we are leading the nation in new cyber initiatives.
Our beautiful, fun and exciting city is home to many of America’s best-loved stars of music, theater and the big screen. Come join us on the historic Red River and enjoy our fabulous entertainment, arts, fine and casual dining, hotels that range from elegant to cozy, terrific shopping, exciting festivals and of course, famed riverboat gambling. As Chairman of the Board, it is my honor to represent the business community of Bossier Parish as we work together to help our Parish prosper.
