The Ehrhardt Group partnered with industry leaders to establish the Grow Louisiana Coalition (GLAC) to raise awareness and adjust public perception surrounding the state’s number one economic and environmental partner. TEG secured more than 85 educational presentations about the importance of the oil and gas industry in the state to professional, retiree, community and student groups across 17 parishes in Louisiana. The second annual Oil and Gas Industry Day in 2016 featured local and national elected officials. Among others, the Governor of Louisiana and three U.S. congressmen spoke to more than 450 attendees, doubling attendance from the first industry day held in 2015. What started as an idea in TEG’s offices in 2014 has grown to a coalition of more than 22,000 active members today.
