    President’s Message

    “Favorite people, favorite places, favorite memories of the past. These are the joys of a lifetime, these are the things that last.” Henry van Dyke

    School is now out for the Atlanta area and for all of us Atlanta commuters and anyone traveling here for business. I’m certain you have seen a bit of reprieve in our traffic. Having our catastrophic I-85 bridge collapse repaired (which was completed in record speed) also helps in this endeavor.

    With the summer season upon us, we must now balance our work lives and our family lives. Our SLA family has a wide range of members that are in different stages of “family”. These range from grandparents visiting with the kids they get to spoil and give back, to young families working to create a new memory on the beach or in the mountains. Some of the younger generation are traveling back home to visit with family they have missed while others may be happy to not travel and simply enjoy a “staycation”. Others are just taking an opportunity to spend time with friends. Regardless of your stage in life, take time to cherish your friends and family. Enjoy your loved ones and create new memories – after all, that is why we work so hard!

    Our last SLA meeting we enjoyed Trey Rainwater, P.E. of ProNet Group, Inc., who in additional to sponsoring the luncheon, gave us great information on commercial HVAC units. You cannot always assume the damaged equipment must be replaced. The large units are often times repairable.

    We look forward to seeing you this week at our regularly scheduled luncheon this week on Thursday, June 8th at the Northpoint Diner located in Alpharetta. Fred Ferrand, Partner at Swift Currie Attorneys at Law will be presenting “Handling The Large Commercial Fraud Case, Including Vendor Fraud.” This course is approved for One Hour of Georgia CE credit.

    Kind Regards,
