A seminar to address business incentives offered through the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act is scheduled for Wednesday, May 24 at the Houma Civic Center.

The event is regionally focused and targeted to serve companies in the parishes of Assumption, Lafourche, St. Mary and Terrebonne. The half-day event will bring in experts to address each of the components of the GO Zone incentives.
