Panelist Bio


Allen Reynolds
Former State Civil Service Director, Retired State Employees Association Board Member

Allen began his career with the Department of State Civil Service in 1973. He served in several different positions within the Department including Undersecretary and Deputy Director. The State Civil Service Commission appointed him as Director in May 1996, first in an acting capacity and then later as the permanent Director. He served in that position until he retired in May 2005.

Under his leadership the Department and Commission implemented several major changes in the Civil Service program. Partially as a result of these initiatives, the International Public Management Association for Human Resources selected the Department for its Large Agency of the Year Award in 2003.

During his career, Allen was active in several professional organizations. He also served for many years as a member and Chairman of Louisiana’s Comprehensive Public Training Program, the state’s management development program. He received the Charles E. Dunbar Career Service Award and the Monte M. Lemann Award in recognition of his contributions to the State of Louisiana.

Following retirement, he became active in the Retired State Employees Association serving first as President of the Baton Rouge Chapter and then later as Executive Director. He currently serves as an at-large member of the Association Board.

Allen and his wife, Flory, have two children and spend as much time as possible with them and their five grandchildren.

     11/17 - Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?

Is Louisiana a Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?
For decades Louisiana has proclaimed itself as the “Sportsman’s Paradise.” But for today’s hunters, changes to Louisiana’s landscape have caused a decline in the quality of the state’s deer habitat and smaller game. For coastal fishermen, private property rights often unduly restrict access to waters that are considered public in any other state.

Louisiana Public Square explores some of the challenges that the state’s hunters and anglers face on “Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?” Wednesday, November 22 at 7p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, November 21)
