Atlanta NADRA Chapter August Meeting Re-cap

September 14, 2011 | Thanks to everyone that attended [our last] meeting and helped with making it a success.

The turn out was great with 52 signing the registry. The McCormick & Schmick facility was a definite step in the right direction although it’s obvious we still need more space. Our chapter apparently made an impression on the staff there as well as the manager has offered to set up a private bar for us at our next meeting since our members just about ran the legs off the servers… lol.

Special thanks go out to Larry Pease and Kevin Magers of Trex for sponsoring our gathering. Larry gave an update on many of Trex’s new products including the porch boards and steel structure components. The presentation and the support and sponsoring of our chapter are much appreciated and it should be pointed out that Trex has strongly supported this chapter since our inception.

Very special thanks to our State Representative Mark Hamilton who was generous enough to spend an evening with us and serve as our key note speaker. He touched on a number of interesting topics including issues that affect our state economically and on the immigrations legislation that is being passed in Georgia. Thanks to Ms. Ginny Tibbett’s for arranging for Mr. Hamilton’s appearance.

Thanks to one of our founding members Frank Palogruto for giving a presentation on “Synergies”. This type of member participation is both appreciated and encouraged. I hope this is the first of many that will volunteer to share thoughts and ideas with our chapter members.

Atlanta NADRA Chapter August Meeting

August 5, 2011 | Hello Atlanta NADRA Chapter Members

Our next Atlanta NADRA Chapter meeting is just around the corner. It will be held at the McCormick & Schmicks at Perimeter Mall on Tuesday the 16th at 5:30. This facility adds a touch of class and provides us more space, privacy, and other amenities. The food line up will be great as well.
This session is being sponsored by Trex. We have quite an agenda headlined by our Georgia State Representative Mark Hamilton who will be our key note speaker. I believe we’ll all find what he has to share interesting.

We’ll have several in- house business items to cover this time around and we’ll also hear from one of our own contributing members giving a short speak on “Synergies”.
I’d like to ask committee members to share any updates on progress or plans regarding their specific efforts. We’re at a point in the year that hopefully some progress has been made in all areas.
Our Deck for a Soldier effort is coming up soon so I’d like to specifically ask that those members who wish to volunteer to assist with this years Deck for a Soldier Program come prepared to commit to whatever aspects they can lend help with.
