Offering Old South graciousness blended with an ambitious zest for expansion and dominance, Atlanta has assumed an important position in national and international commerce. Ted Turner, one of the city's well-known citizens, has declared that Atlanta has "absolutely everything going for it-climate, location, great transportation, easy air access, and a government that's both cooperative and supportive." This is a judgment widely shared by both residents and visitors.
Jamie McAtee - UPA2011 Local Atlanta Liaison: "Welcome to Atlanta birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King, Margaret Mitchell and Coca-Cola and home to the Carter Presidential library and CNN. There are many great things to see and do in Atlanta. Some of my favorite things activities in Atlanta having drinks and taking in the view at the Sundial bar. Visiting Piedmont Park, Midtown and dining at some of the great Atlanta restaurants. I hope you will take some time away from the conference to take in all of the great things Atlanta has to offer."
