The LSU Center for Energy Studies and the American Shale & Manufacturing Partnership (ASMP) invite you to participate in this exclusive, senior level discussion highlighting the potential of domestic shale resources and the resurgence of American manufacturing. ASMP has traveled around the country to Pennsylvania, Ohio and Texas and has held events focused on issues and potential solutions to promote a successful Manufacturing Renaissance.

The May 9, 2014 event is a culmination of these previous discussions and will be focused on analysis, prioritization and recommendations. A key component of this gathering is collecting input from senior executives from companies and organizations such as yours. Attendees will include opinion leaders, lawmakers, government officials, C-level industry executives, environment and labor experts, and academia from across the country and from all sectors of the industry. The discussion will be focused on five core areas: federal and state policies; infrastructure; environment; research and innovation; and workforce education and jobs creation. The end goal of the discussion series is the creation of a Manufacturing Renaissance policies framework which is scheduled for launch in 1Q15 in Washington, DC
