Economist Elliott Eisenberg returns to Lafayette next week with a new economic impact study, including up-to-date numbers on the home building industry and its projected influence on the local economy. He will present his report at a luncheon lecture on Tuesday, March 20, at noon at The Lafayette Hilton, presented jointly by INDevents and The Acadian Home Builders Association.

Eisenberg, a senior economist for the National Home Builders Association, is known for his lively presentation style and respected for his depth of knowledge on the industry. Analysts everywhere use residential construction as a leading indicator of economic vitality, and though Acadiana has remained resilient amid the national economic downturn, home building is still an important bellwether of what is to come in 2012 and beyond.

Tickets are $40 per person or $350 for a premium table for eight. For luncheon reservations, contact Robin Hebert by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone at (337) 769-8603.
