Join us 10 a.m. May 17 at the Golf Depot, 789 Science Blvd., in the Columbus suburb of Gahanna (exit 39 off I-270 to East Broad St. MAP) for a panel discussion of transportation and community development experts from Ohio and Indiana on the proposed Columbus – Marysville – Kenton – Lima – Fort Wayne – Chicago multi-use rail corridor!
Other agenda topics:
- Columbus regional rail;
- The new Northern Corridor Rail Alliance (see separate blog item below);
- Streetcar projects in Cincinnati and possibly other cities.
All Aboard Ohio’s business meeting will be in the morning, followed by lunch at 12 noon and the panel discussion at 1:30 p.m. You’re welcome to join us for the entire day, or starting at lunch for the afternoon session. Full-day registration rates will apply.
Since this is an even-numbered year, this will be the year of the All Aboard Ohio board of directors election. There are no contested races so the 10 candidates will be presented as a slate for membership consideration. Per the bylaws, up to five more board members can be appointed to the board. The board will then select from its own ranks the officers: chairman, vice-chairman, secretary and treasurer. The candidates are listed in Issue #183 of the Ohio Passenger Rail News which was mailed April 2 to all members who paid their membership dues after Dec. 1, 2012 (the start of our 2013 fiscal year). If you did not receive a newsletter or have a question about your membership status, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Registration includes meeting, continental breakfast (9:30-10 a.m.), and a build-your-own-sandwich lunch buffet plus beverages.
