May was an exceptionally busy month for the Atlanta Chapter. The A-35 team had a social at Taco Mac on May 14. Katie Reilley organized the event, and students from Clark Atlanta University joined them. In recognition of National Transportation Week, Georgia Governor Sonny Purdue proclaimed Georgia Transportation Week. Members of the Atlanta Chapter were invited to his office for the signing of the proclamation on May 19. The monthly chapter meeting was held on May 21 in Powder Springs, GA, at the American MagLev Technology (AMT) test track. Members toured the facility, received a capabilities and program brief from AMT CEO Tony Morris, and saw an operational maglev train. Mr. Morris described how magnetic levitation technology can help reduce costs and in regional transit systems. The next significant chapter event is the annual Scholarship Golf Tournament, scheduled for July 11 at The Golfer's Club on Fort McPherson.
