About Canvas

The 2015 Super Region Canvas: A Benchmarking Workshop will be a joint-venture between the Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) and Greater New Orleans, Inc. (GNO, Inc.) to travel to Phoenix/Scottsdale (PHX) and the Tucson (TUS) region, more commonly known as the Sun Corridor, from April 19-21, 2015.

Why PHX & TUS?

Like the Southeast Super Region, Phoenix/Scottsdale and the Tucson region have worked together in several aspects of economic development to become more competitive and to increase the quality of life for residents in areas such as transportation, education, innovation, workforce, health care, and creative culture.

Canvas On the Move

Past Canvas Workshops to Austin, Nashville, Raleigh-Durham, Portland, Richmond, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Central Florida have exposed participants to a wide range of ideas and practices for economic and community development.
