On Thursday, October 2, people from all over Acadiana came together to honor the 2014 "Women Who Mean Business",  sponsored by ABiz, IBERIABANK and the LHC Group. This year's honorees brought together women from all professions, including SMHA's own President and CEO, Lorna Bourg! The event took place at the River Oaks center in Lafayette, where attendees enjoyed presentations from all eleven honorees.
