CPAL Day at the Capitol 2024

We had a great Day at the Capitol this year! Follow on Social for more Updates!

A Message from the Executive Director:

It has been another year of growth, change, and opportunity for the Community Provider Association. I am very proud to share this Year in Review with you and to reflect on all we accomplished together in 2023 while also looking forward to the year to come!

As we head into 2024, one of the major changes for our organization will be a refreshed logo (which you can see throughout this report!) and an updated name. Moving forward, we will be the Community Provider Association of Louisiana (CPAL). As our association continues to gain notoriety and influence, especially at the federal level, the Board of Directors felt that our name should specifically communicate our statewide scope. Our new logo, with the three distinct colors creating a single unbroken circle, reflects the different members and supporters who comprise our association and the way in which all the components of the disability services system complement and strengthen each other.

You will see examples of this collaboration, strength, and influence in the pages that follow. This year, we continued to advance our mission in the key areas of advocacy, collaboration and education:

2024 will bring a number of changes in Louisiana, including a new governor and a large number of new legislators. The CPAL will continue to advocate, collaborate, and educate on your behalf to ensure that our disability services community is strong and well-represented. I’m looking forward to tackling this work together.

Thank you for your role in our CPAL community!
