Dear NCLAC Members, It is with mixed feelings that I write this letter today. I am writing to announce that I will be stepping down as the Executive Director of the North Central Louisiana Arts Council to take a new position in Bossier City.

I wanted to take a few moments to thank the communities in which NCLAC serves. It has been a joy to work here and I have learned so much. Most importantly I have learned that our "home" has a deep passion and support for the arts. I would like to express my gratitude to everyone and say how much I will miss NCLAC.

I am excited for the future of NCLAC, our very own Educational Coordinator, Jessica Slaughter, has agreed to step up and serve as NCLAC's new Executive Director. Her passion and commitment to the arts will lead NCLAC into new and exciting possibilities.

If you have any questions about NCLAC or their programming please feel free to contact Jessica at our offices in the Dixie Center for the Arts, by phone at 255-1450, or via email at

Leigh Anne Chambers Past Executive Director
