ARCS Chapter Atlanta members planning the October All Members Conference in their city had one immediate goal – to show fellow ARCS members firsthand “Southern hospitality.”
According to Debbie Liss, ARCS Chapter Atlanta member and AMC committee member, “We wanted to foster a way for members to get to know each other in a home atmosphere. That is how we decided to pursue the idea of having small dinner parties. Our feeling was that doing this at the beginning of the conference would be a great way to start the meeting.”
Plan your travels to be in Atlanta in time for Monday’s dinner on October 10th. You will be assigned to an ARCS Atlanta dinner host. Hosts will consider dietary restrictions in menu planning and help guide your transportation to their homes.
If you need to brush up on dinner conversation before you arrive, here are a few ideas:
- After two years of planning, the ARCS Atlanta Chapter was officially formed in 1992. The chapter’s first president was Mary O’Connor. The current chapter president is Sarah Jean Burke.
- The Atlanta chapter supports scholars at four partner institutions: Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Morehouse College and, The University of Georgia.
- Atlanta is actually the fifth capital of the state of Georgia. Atlanta was previously known as Terminus (as the end of a railway line) and Marthasville.
- Atlanta is the birthplace of the civil rights movement. You will tour the National Human and Civil Rights Center during the conference.
