LAFAYETTE, LA (October 6, 2020) – October 2020 marks 65 years of LAGCOE’s service to the Louisiana
and global energy industries. From its humble origins in the parking lot of Lafayette’s Oil Center to its most
recent expansion to the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, LAGCOE’s history bears a strong
resemblance to the cyclical nature of the energy industry and highlights its importance to the economy and
culture in Acadiana.
On Monday, December 9, 2019, Angela Cring stepped down as Executive Director of LAGCOE, a position she held for nearly a decade. Cring’s departure comes months after LAGCOE’s historic move from Lafayette to New Orleans, LA. Under Cring’s leadership, the biennial event successfully endured the year of transition and laid a foundation for another successful event in 2021.
