Highlights from RRVA’s 2023 Convention

The Red River Valley Association (RRVA) held its 98th Annual Convention on February 22–23, 2023, at the Sam’s Town Hotel & Convention Center in Shreveport, Louisiana.

In addition to meeting the new RRVA Executive Director Emily Mott, members heard from U.S. Congressman Mike Johnson and the importance of the connection between the Red River Valley and Washington D.C. The RRVA always appreciates the work of Congressman Johnson and all his efforts on behalf of the Red River Valley and Louisiana.

After two full days of updates, reports, committee meetings, reception, and dinner, the attendees left with a greater understanding of what’s new and what’s next for the Red River Valley. “The Red River is vital to so many people in the four-state Red River Valley, economically through commerce and navigation, as a source of recreation, irrigation, and managing the risks of flooding,” Mott said. “I’m proud to be a part of the ongoing development of this precious resource.”
