CAP Annual Meeting Sponsorship Available - Deadline Jan. 20

January 18,2011

For Central Atlanta Progress, 2010 was a year of significant achievement. Starting with our successful 68th Annual Meeting in March where more than 1100 of our friends and supporters came together to hear inspiring words from Georgia State University’s Head Football Coach, Bill Curry and Charlie Loudermilk, our Dan Sweat award recipient. In August, our inaugural Georgia Forward Forum attracted 200 leaders from across the State to discuss a common vision for Georgia addressing our biggest challenges, including water equity, transportation, education and economic development. October brought news of a $47 million Federal grant for the Atlanta Streetcar. And, our 9th Annual Downtown Development Day in November broke all previous attendance records with more than 500 registrants.

We won’t rest on our laurels long, however. We’re already hard at work to make our 2011 Annual Meeting the best yet. CAP is pleased to announce that the date of the 2011 Annual Meeting is set for Tuesday, March 15th at 8:00 a.m. (registration, breakfast and networking will begin at 7:00 a.m.).

In these challenging economic times, it is critical that we continue to invest close to home and work to sustain a superior quality of life, not just for Downtown but for the entire City of Atlanta. We invite you to consider this opportunity to sponsor our 2011 Annual Meeting and support CAP in its efforts to sustain a vibrant Downtown community.
