RTA’s first general membership meeting of 2023 is this coming Tuesday, January 10th, from 10 am until 11 am.

Our online panelists will include Zach Pierce from the office of Governor Roy Cooper, Mike Abraczinskas and Robin Barrows with the NC Division of Air Quality, and Mark McIntire, the director of environmental policy and government affairs with RTA Leadership Team member Duke Energy.
