Douglasville, GA (July 12, 2019) – HRC Engineers, Surveyors and Landscape Architects announced today that its president, Howard B. Ray, has been named as a participant in The Atlanta Regional Commission’s 2019 Regional Leadership Institute (RLI).  

Mr.Ray is one of 56 public, private, education and non-profit leaders selected from around metro-Atlanta to serve as a member of the RLI, he will have the opportunity to dig into key regional issues during the week-long leadership development program.

“I look forward to the opportunity to participate in this important initiative,” said Mr.Ray, who heads a collaboration of more than 25 team members dedicated to delivering the high-value services that make clients more successful and communities better. “The goals of RLI align closely with our firm’s core values,” he added. 

According to Jim Jaquish of the Atlanta Regional Commission, the 2019 RLI class will delve into the importance of regional collaboration to ensure metro Atlanta’s success, with topics including water sustainability and resources, barriers to full employment and regional and community planning.

 “RLI provides the Atlanta region with a priceless resource – leaders who understand the power of collaboration and who can think beyond their local jurisdiction,” said Doug Hooker, ARC executive director. “We collaborate on issues like water, transportation, workforce development and other topics that don’t recognize political boundaries.” 

“Since 1991, more than 1,500 leaders from the business, government, education and nonprofit sectors have participated in the RLI program. This program is designed to expose current organizational and community leaders to the importance of understanding specific issues and challenges facing our region and how they are all interconnected,” said Jaquish
