Wednesday, April 17, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM

Transportation is such an integral part of our lives that it's easy not to think about it. That's why we're taking a magnifying glass to it for our April forum! We'll be examining many different aspects of transportation and looking at ways they can each improve as we move forward. We hope you'll join us!
This forum is free and open to the public!
Date: Wednesday April 17, 2013
Time: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Place: GE Monogram Design Center, 150 E 58th St., New York, NY 10155
NOTE: Though our event will not begin until 6:30, our very gracious host has asked us to invite our attendees to arrive as early as 6:00pm to enjoy the food and drink they provide!
