Atlanta Chapter.

Steve Henry, Director of Operations for the Georgia Department of Transportation (G-DoT) was the featured speaker at the October meeting of the Atlanta Chapter of NDTA. Steve presented an historical review of the role of G-DoT and how it ties to DoD movements. He also provided an infrastructure overview for the state highway network, which included a series of initiatives that G-DoT is employing to reduce existing and future congestion throughout the state. The strategy calls for partnership with government and private enterprise to manage development and growth. Steve showed a correlation between transportation infrastructure expansion and growth in the metropolitan areas. On November 16, the Chapter conducted a general membership business meeting. Larry Thomas chaired the meeting as plans were formulated to rejuvenate the board of directors and increase general membership. Larry also provided a financial update and a rundown of the scholarship program. COL Brian Waters discussed upcoming chapter programs, which in 2006 will be centered on four themes: Education, Carriers, Infrastructure, and Contemporary Professional Topics. The annual Chapter Christmas Party of the USMC Toys for Tots Program took place in December.
