ULM'S Chautauqua Nexus to discuss the State of Monroe Tuesday

The University of Louisiana at Monroe's Chautauqua Nexus is focusing on the City of Monroe for their upcoming discussion. The talk is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 24th on the second floor of the Student Union Building beginning at 6:30p.m.

Monroe Attorney Matt Courtman, and ULM Professor Pearson Cross will moderate the unstructured discussion.

ULM Professor and Chautauqua organizer, Joe McGahan, says, "The purpose of this meeting is to review where we are as a city in much the same way that we have an annual state of union address from the president. In this case, however, we're hoping that concerned citizens will come and discuss their thoughts on the state of Monroe. Please consider joining us and, if possible, mentioning it to your friends and family and others as we are hoping for a strong turnout."

These weekly meetings are informal conversations attempting to connect people of all ages who are interested in intellectual and cultural exchanges. The Chautuaqua Nexus meets every week on the second floor of the Student Union Building on the ULM campus (unless otherwise noted) beginning at 4:30 on Fridays or Saturdays. There are no requirements and everyone is invited to come. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Visitors are welcome to make a small donation for refreshments.

All media welcome.
