2019 Spring Conference

The Louisiana Parish Engineers and Supervisors Association (LPESA) was founded in 1972 to foster and maintain a high professional spirit among Louisiana parish's public works and engineering employees. It provides instructive, entertaining, and important programs to those primarily concerned with the planning, operation, and maintenance of parish infrastructure. The LPESA is an organization through which programs may be coordinated among parishes and other government agencies. The organization's goal is to include an active member in every parish in Louisiana. CLICK HERE to visit the LPESA website.
