PAR President Steven Procopio will speak at May 6 Press Club

Steven Procopio, president of the Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana (PAR), will be the guest speaker at the Press Club of Baton Rouge on Monday, May 6. He will speak about the potential upcoming constitutional convention and the effort to give Gov. Jeff Landry control of the state Ethics Board, which last year dinged him for taking a private flight from a campaign donor.

Press Club meets on Mondays in the ballroom at Drusilla Place Catering, which is located at the Drusilla Shopping Center at Drusilla Drive and Jefferson Hwy. Lunch, which is a sit-down meal served at 12:15 p.m., is $25 for members and $30 for nonmembers. Doors open at 11:30 a.m.

The public is invited, but only members of the Press Club and news reporters are allowed to ask questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
