Chamber of Commerce launches new ‘Move to Bossier’ Web site

The Bossier Chamber of Commerce has launched a new Web site, “Move to Bossier,” which is designed to highlight the quality of life and innovation in Bossier Parish and Northwest Louisiana.

The site was developed by the Bossier Chamber to meet the needs of companies seeking to invest in the region by providing assistance in the recruitment and relocation of employees.

The site displays a comprehensive look at life in Bossier, featuring aspects from work to play, learning and living. Users will have an interactive tool to help guide them when making decisions on relocating.

Lisa Johnson, Bossier Chamber president, said, “Producing tools such as ‘Move to Bossier’ plays an important role in furthering the voice of Bossier Parish and attracting companies such as the recently announced CSC. This project is an extension of the Chamber’s Alumni Initiative, which aims to connect highly skilled out-of-area professionals with innovative careers in Bossier Parish.”

The Chamber partnered with the Cyber Innovation Center for the launch of this project, but intends the site to be an instrumental tool for its members who are looking to attain quality employees as well as workforce development.

Over the years, many residents have left the area in pursuit of better jobs. “Move to Bossier” serves to strengthen economic partnerships and develop community connections by linking past and future residents of the region to highpaying, high-tech jobs in Bossier City. Research from 2012 shows that for every high-tech job created, there will be five additional jobs in the service economy over the long run. North Louisiana represents one of the fastest-growing digital media hubs in the nation and is a magnet for cutting-edge companies as a result of competitive tax incentive packages and research facilities such as the Cyber Innovation Center.

Here’s an interesting thought. Why is it that Louisiana and neighboring state Mississippi are always on the bottom of every national ranking involving virtually every aspect of a state’s quality of life? Yet casino gambling is widespread throughout both states at a level not found any place else in America outside of Las Vegas.

On April 28, citizens of Shreveport face a choice: Fund basic city services or plunge the city into fiscal chaos. It would have been inconceivable 20 years ago that routine tax renewals to fund the fire and police departments and other basic city services would not have the collective support of the city’s business, civic and political leadership.
