JOIN THE (LAND USE) CLUB
We snapped this yesterday at Midtown Plaza of The Alter Group's Russ Posey and Atlanta Regional Commission director Chick Krautler, among the power players already involved in the four-month-old Atlanta chapter of land economics society Lambda Alpha International. With others like Georgia Power director of economic development Robin Spratlin and former three-term East Point mayor Patsy Jo Hilliard, the group met to discuss land use, sustainability and water—and to drink Coke products.
Joan Herron is president of two things: Atlanta Lambda Alpha and her own firm Herron Consulting. She says she hopes to grow the Atlanta chapter and continue to attract members such as David Elam, lead director of Fannie Mae's community development.
