“We know that the Amazons of the world are not going away. … We’re just trying to shed light on the fact that if you support your local businesses, they in turn will support you back. When you spend your dollars locally, those dollars return.” – Todd Fingleton, owner of FING Designs of Alexandria

There’s something special about shopping at locally owned businesses and restaurants. For starters, they offer a unique experience that patrons just can’t get when shopping at a national chain store or through an online business. Locally owned businesses also offer specialty items that can’t be found elsewhere, as well as personalized service geared to keeping their customers satisfied. Taken as a whole, local businesses add to the distinct character of the community and enhance its very essence. They are run by entrepreneurs who are passionate about their companies, not by out-of-state CEOs who only care about the bottom line.

That’s because a lot more of the money spent stays and circulates in the community compared to shopping at a chain store and especially compared to shopping with a nonlocal, online business, notes Deborah Randolph, president of the Central Louisiana Regional Chamber of Commerce.

community and awareness of the advantages to customers, residents will “make the conscious choice” to shop, dine and do business with local establishments, Randolph believes. She adds that local businesses have local employees, collect local and state sales taxes, pay local property taxes, purchase goods locally, and “support charitable organizations, arts and cultural venues and events, and things such as youth sports team.” Those businesses include locally owned franchises of national and regional chains. The Chamber is urging local businesses to have user-friendly websites to cater to customers who turn to the internet for shopping. The Chamber will even help companies create websites to help them capture online business. The “evidence-based” Come Together Locally campaign “is about more than shopping,” Randolph says. “It’s also about dining and doing businesses locally. There are many, many service-provider businesses—in fact, that sector is the largest one.” Robin Ewing of Ewing Pool & Spa in Alexandria says shopping locally clearly keeps more money in the community. “This money is subsequently spent in the local economy many times through purchasing, salaries, taxes and so on,” says Ewing. “Not only did the initial money buy you what you want, it helps many other areas of the local economy benefit as well. Another benefit is the personal relationships you build with others.” It is actually more convenient to shop at a local store than to shop online. “I would argue that being able to see, feel, smell, try on, sample, try out a product in a locally owned store is way more convenient than purchasing blindly with the click of a mouse, having to wait for delivery and in a high percentage of cases having to return the item for a correct size or something,” Ewing says. Jennifer Atwood, owner of downtown Alexandria restaurants Embers and Crave, says support of local eateries, shops and services encourages other entrepreneurs to open more such establishments. “To get new businesses, people need to shop at the local businesses, so the local businesses thrive,” Atwood says. She and Ewing agree local businesses feature customized products and are much more responsive to customer complaints and needs. “It’s a combination of customer service, an experience in that retail store (or restaurant) and unique goods offered,” Randolph says of the advantages of shopping locally. Todd Fingleton, owner of FING Designs of Alexandria, is providing marketing services for the Come Together Locally campaign. The campaign, which launched Oct. 1, 2017, is using the Chamber’s website, social media

and traditional media to get the message across, and it is continually adding new information and interactive options to keep the campaign fresh. Come Together Locally, a slogan which is a takeoff of the Beatles song “Come Together,” is a “rally cry— something that not only the businesses but the community could become a part of and support,” Fingleton says. “We know that the Amazons of the world are not going away. … We’re just trying to shed light on the fact that if you support your local businesses, they in turn will support you back. When you spend your dollars locally, those dollars return.” n

The emergency department at RRMC underwent a major expansion in recent years that doubled its size and capacity, making it one of the largest ERs in the state. In 2017, a new helipad opened atop the South Tower, providing direct access to the ER for critical patients. The new helipad is also large enough to support military Black Hawk aircraft. Rapides Women’s and Children’s Hospital is home to a 34-bed Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) that is the largest in central Louisiana, as well as the only Pediatric ICU in the area. Rapides Regional Medical Center helps train the next generation of physicians by housing the LSU Family Practice Residency Center, the LSU Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic, the Tulane GYN Clinic and the Tulane Ophthalmology Clinic. Since the beginning, RRMC’s mission has been to provide high quality, efficient and compassionate health care services for its patients and community through the efforts of its employees, physicians and volunteers.

Over the last three years, Northwestern State has created new programs and strengthened existing ones to fill jobs in Louisiana. These include a Doctor of Nursing Practice and a Doctor of Education. Partnerships with business and industry create opportunities for students to gain practical experience before they graduate. Programs promote internships, externships and Photo courtesy of Louisiana College

(CLTCC) at one of its nine campuses. 

 CLTCC is a two-year institution that offers certificates, technical diplomas, associate degrees and industry-based certifications. CLTCC offers career and technical education programs, dual enrollment courses for high school students, prep classes for individuals who want to earn a high school equivalency diploma, general education courses and workforce development training. Most recently, CLTCC received two grants—one from the Rapides Foundation and a matching grant from the state worth a total of $4 million to establish the Central Louisiana Manufacturing Technology Center and to build and expand manufacturing programs throughout the region. In the coming years, CLTCC will strengthen its manufacturing curriculum, create pathways for students, increase work-based training and more. Northwestern State University was founded in 1884 as the Louisiana State Normal School, the state’s designated institution for the training of teachers. Since then, the university has evolved to a current enrollment of nearly 11,000 students and has forged partnerships with business, industry and other institutions to align the future workforce with job opportunities to meet industry needs and promote economic development in Louisiana.

other opportunities at the bachelor’s and master’s degree levels. Northwestern State has agreements with several community and technical colleges around the state that allow students who complete a two-year degree to transfer credits to apply towards a bachelor’s degree, which saves time and money and opens career opportunities. Last year, Northwestern State developed a competencybased program. This is a flexible education model that allows students to learn and advance at their own pace by focusing on outcomes rather than time spent in a classroom. The first of its kind in Louisiana, this program allows students to pursue a degree in computer information systems. Additionally, individuals already in the workforce may earn credit based on their professional expertise to apply towards a degree program in computer information systems or a related field. Founded in 1906, Louisiana College is a liberal arts institution distinguished by a heritage of superlative academics built upon a Christian worldview, whose vision is to Prepare Graduates and Transform Lives. Committed to holistically developing in students a maturity of intellect and character, Louisiana College’s curricular convictions are characterized by three words: Relevant, Relational and Rigorous. With a consistently increasing enrollment since 2015, Louisiana College attracts students of high caliber and moral fiber, as they want a college that will reinforce and integrate their faith and learning. Students also unfailingly credit LC professors for their compassion for the whole student. Louisiana College offers financial assistance for qualified students through several scholarships that can apply to our no-fee, flat rate tuition. In fact, almost 100 percent of students receive some form of financial aid. Life outside the classroom includes participation in or observation of 18 men’s and women’s NCAA Division III sports. Other activities include intramurals, theater, Baptist Collegiate Ministries, humanitarian projects, student government association, mission trips and coming soon: a Bass fishing club. 28 • Central Louisiana

READY TO WORK Connecting Students to Careers

Photo courtesy of LSU of Alexandria

In order for central Louisiana’s economy to grow, the community needs a workforce that’s trained and ready to do the jobs local businesses need. To achieve that goal, local educators, business organizations and the state have joined forces to provide students with the skills they need to be successful in their careers.

SPECIALTY SERVICES INCLUDE: • Site Selection • Entitlement • Budgeting • Due Diligence • Acquisition • Business Plan Modeling • Scheduling “The Company that does what it says it’s going to do. Period.”

It’s all part of a statewide initiative called Jump Start, which is designed to provide students with basic and advanced career credentials, allowing them to continue their education after high school. High schools in the region also use WorkKeys, a careerreadiness assessment conducted through career-focused methods. “The WorkKeys assessments provide the opportunity for students to exhibit skills valued by employers,” says Dr. Marjorie Taylor, executive director for the Orchard Foundation, the educational arm of the Rapides Foundation. “In addition to showing that

a student has the skills necessary for employment, it also provides additional opportunities for them to continue their education after high school.” The program has already had a significant impact locally as 10 parishes in central Louisiana have earned the work ready community designation from ACT. Communities achieve work ready status by issuing National Career Readiness Certificates (NCRC) and having employers recognize and recommend the credential. So far, more than 28,000 NCRCs have been earned in the region. Nearly 300 employers in the region support WorkKeys and recognize the NCRC credential. Local employers,

including Gilchrist Construction and RoyOMartin, can attest to the benefits of the training program as each company works with the local schools to train their new employees. “We began using the Work Keys/NCRC credential for new employees back in 2011 and have continued that practice over the past seven years,” says Valerie Aymond, chief resource officer for Gilchrist Construction Company. “What has resulted is a higher-quality workforce and also a better understanding of our incumbent workforce and the rate at which they learn new skills and competencies.” n By Jim Smilie

BUSINESS PORTFOLIO

Outstanding Operations

Diverse Range of Assets and Companies Located in Central Louisiana Central Louisiana continues to be an attractive option for business developers thanks to the numerous infrastructure advantages readily found in the area, including access to a port on the Red River, Interstate 49 and other major highways crossing Alexandria and Pineville.

CENTRAL LOUISIANA REGIONAL PORT Since its inception in 1988, the Central Louisiana Regional Port (CLRP) has contributed to the local economy in numerous ways and continues to grow. In fact, CLRP acquired land in Rapides Parish to make room for more tenants in 2017 and is looking for more opportunities to expand. The addition of new tenant Alexandria Terminal

Company LLC, which uses the port’s liquid off-loading terminal, led to a significant increase in tonnage at the port. The port also acquired 7 acres of land on the Alexandria side of the levee, which will make it much easier for staging operations and use for military rotations. “The port is basically at 100 percent capacity, so moving forward we are looking for opportunities to grow the port’s footprint,” says Blake Cooper, CLRP executive director. The facility has also benefited from more than $2 million in grants from the Economic Development Administration and the Red River Waterway Commission, which were used to make roadway improvements and warehouse expansion.

HISTORY

Salute to Heroes

Military Maintains Strong Identity in Cenla The military’s presence and heritage are part of the fabric of central Louisiana, and residents strongly embrace veterans and their families. A community’s support for the military is extremely important because it is taken into consideration when Army officials are evaluating each post. That support has helped Fort Polk, located in Vernon Parish, stay off base-closure lists during military downsizing. Fort Polk and the National Guard are “vital partners” with the Chamber and “are critical for future growth in the region,” says Deborah Randolph, Central Louisiana Regional Chamber of Commerce president. A new report on military spending in Louisiana shows Fort Polk directly contributes more than 14,000 jobs and more than $760 million in payroll. The report by Business Development Advisors (BDA) estimates total spending at Fort Polk at $1.09 billion in fiscal year 2016. The BDA report also shows the Louisiana National Guard, which has a large installation at Camp Beauregard, spent more than $90 million in Cenla in fiscal 2016. The Chamber is an advocate for Fort Polk to maintain its current troop strength and “grow it in the future,” Randolph says, as well as for the base’s infrastructure needs, such as transportation and drainage projects. Also, the Chamber’s Military Affairs Committee supports the troops and their families with various programs, as well as working with Fort Polk and National Guard leadership. Programs include facilitating discounts at businesses; job training for soldiers leaving the military; and hosting military personnel and their families at Mardi Gras parades and other events. “Fort Polk is: World Class Training - Deployable Combat Ready Units - & - Great Soldier and Army Family Quality of Life. Our patriotic neighbors here in CENLA contribute to all three of these critical aspects of JRTC and Fort Polk,” says Brig. Gen.

Patrick D. Frank, commanding general of the Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk. “All 8,000+ Soldiers at Fort Polk salute the communities across Cenla for making our Soldiers and Army Families feel at home in your neighborhoods — for the kind word on the way to work — the assistance to a Family with a deployed Soldier — and the pride that you always express about your U.S. Army. Thank you from the Home of Heroes - Fort Polk, Louisiana.” Cenla has a proud and rich military history, and Fort Polk has extraordinary support from the Chamber and the community. Maj. Gen. Glenn H. Curtis, adjutant general of the Louisiana National Guard, says, “Having a strong relationship with our community is part of the Louisiana National Guard’s mission. We are proud to serve and thankful for partners like the Chamber of Commerce and Central Louisiana.” The Chamber has a special relationship with Fort Polk’s 46th Engineer Battalion. Members of the 46th and their families volunteered to work on various projects suggested by the Chamber during Make A Difference Day last October, including refurbishments at Mt. Zion senior apartment complex. Some residents were so thankful that they went around hugging the volunteers. “It touched me that the soldiers of the 46th and their families wanted to come to our community and engage in the projects, because in my mind, they’re our American heroes who give so much,” says Randolph. Lt. Col. Christopher D. Klein, commander of the 46th, says Command Sgt. Maj. James Mitchell was the driving force in carrying out the Make A Difference Day projects. “These events create a bond between the community and service members,” he said. “Our community partners provide spectacular support to the soldiers and families of Fort Polk.” n By Richard Sharkey www.cenlachamber.org • 43
