The 2010 AORTA Annual Meeting and Luncheon will be held on
Saturday, November 6 in the Tom Hardy private dining room of
Jake’s Grill at the Governor Hotel in Portland.

Coming just a few days after the General Elections, this meeting
will allow rail supporters to determine the best path ahead for
the coming year.

Our principal guest speaker will be Martin Callery, Chief
Commercial Officer, Oregon International Port of Coos Bay, who
will tell a true success story achieved through Connect Oregon
III funding. In addition, we will have an update from Chris
Rall, Oregon Coordinator, Transportation For America, a broad
coalition of which AORTA is now an affiliate. This year our
luncheon will be in the ground floor Tom Hardy private dining
room, filled with local art, and with large windows providing a
view of streetcars operating on SW 10th Avenue. The Governor
Hotel was opened in 1909, is listed on the National Register of
Historic Places, is central to Portland’s shopping and cultural
attractions, and offers free wireless internet service. The
schedule allows easy arrival and departure by Amtrak and TriMet
light rail or streetcar. Registration and luncheon price this
year will be less than in 2009: $28 per person, and all
registrations received by October 29 qualify for a $3 discount,
making the cost just $25.
