National Partner Meeting

Held annually in mid-January
Louisiana Humanities Education Center at Turners’ Hall
938 Lafayette Street, New Orleans, LA 70113

Travel Information

The LEH will cost‑share by reserving and paying for one hotel night on behalf of all those who agree to attend the National Partner Meeting. Hotel stays will be booked at the Drury Inn and Suites Hotel for one night (same hotel at which training participants should reserve hotel accommodations). The meeting location is a five‐minute walk from the hotel.  A second hotel night can be reserved and paid for by the LEH on behalf of those whose travel plans require a two‑night stay.  Please inform the PRIME TIME staff if you require two nights and/or intend to stay for the Training Workshop, as this will impact hotel arrangements. Hotel confirmation numbers will be sent via email in mid-December. Contact us at with questions and/concerns.


Project Director’s must book their own airfare, and are encouraged to travel to New Orleans no later than the evening of Thursday, (the day before the meeting) and travel home during the evening of Friday, (after the meeting ends). Those who are attending the January Training Workshop  should plan to travel home on Sunday. Otherwise, we ask that you do all that is possible to ensure that you select arrival and departure flights which will ensure your presence when the meeting begins and ends.
