Henagan named LMA president

Local government officials and municipal employees, representing over 300 municipalities from every corner of the state, descended on the city of Shreveport from July 27-29 for the 80th Annual Louisiana Municipal Association Convention at the Shreveport Convention Center.

Saturday’s main events included installation of new officers and multiple salutes to the achievements of Louisiana’s cities, towns, villages and public servants with recognition and awards presentations.

Lawrence Henagan, mayor of DeQuincy and former LMA first vice president, was installed as president of the association on Saturday, July 29 at the Shreveport Convention Center. Mayor Henagan succeeds Barney Arceneaux, Mayor of Gonzales, as the LMA’s highest-ranking officer.

“It is a tremendous honor to be elected by my peers to serve as President of the LMA,” said Henagan. “I’m looking forward to supporting the great LMA staff as we make sure that we’re focused and doing the things that make the LMA a trusted resource to our members and partners. We’ll continue to strengthen LMA just as those before us have done for the last 91 years.”

Mayor Henagan has been involved in the Louisiana Municipal Association as both a city councilman and mayor for the past 18 years. He was first elected to DeQuincy city council in 1999, serving in that capacity until he was elected mayor in 2004. He spent seven years as District G Vice President and currently serves as President of the Louisiana Municipal Gas Association.

LMA is a unified voice for Louisiana’s municipal governments. The mission is to advocate, educate, and empower local governments to efficiency and effectively serve the citizens of Louisiana. There are 305 LMA members consisting of 127 villages, 111 towns, 65 cities, and two parishes.
