An interesting and varied program is planned for this first meeting of the frosty New Year.
Debra Alexander, Assistant Executive Director of the Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) in East Lansing will update us on the progress of the new East Lansing train and bus station.

She has important roles in the American Public Transportation Association. She holds B.S. and M.S. degrees from Eastern Michigan University. Debra and her husband, Ken, are the parents of an adult son, David.
We will also hear from transportation consultant Ronald K. DeCook, President, DeCook Governmental Policy and Strategies. He is conducting a study of travel mode preferences.
We always enjoy our winter meeting in the community of Williamston, where we are often joined by one of its esteemed residents, Tim Hoeffner, head of MDOT’s Office of Rail.
Following the meeting, we will adjourn to one of the nearby (and excellent) restaurants for our usual no-host lunch.

The town of Williamston, located on the Red Cedar River, owes its early prosperity to the coming of the railroad in 1872, connecting Detroit to the state capitol and aiding the development of agricultural enterprises. Click Here for more information on the Williamston Depot-Museum
