Emerging Professionals Council is a committee of the St. Bernard Chamber of Commerce that provides a variety of networking opportunities to young professionals working, living, and doing business in St. Bernard Parish.  Through the support of the St. Bernard Chamber and the 2017 presenting sponsor, St. Bernard Economic Development Foundation, EPC hosts socials open to Chamber and Non-Chamber members.  The council consists of a diverse panel of young professionals appointed by the St. Bernard Chamber.


The CASA program was created in 1977 by a family court judge who could see that the system in place to care for foster kids was underfunded and overworked.  CASA New Orleans is a private, non-profit organization, managed by a board of directors and operated by staff. We receive funding from a variety of sources including the United Way of Southeast Louisiana, Temporary Aid for Needy Families, Victims of Crime Assistance as well as other private foundations, corporations and generous individuals.  The mission of CASA is to provide trained community volunteers to advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children in court.  Their goal is to ensure that every child has a safe, permanent, nurturing home.  More information can be found at their website
