Guest Speaker will be David Johnson, NARP's new Assistant Director in Washington, DC. Topics will include the
2006 National Amtrak Budget and how we can help, Amtrak Spring schedules and service changes. David's broad
knowledge of passenger rail travel, railroad infrastructure and the obstacles facing Amtrak make him a most valuable
asset to our team. He has experience in operational details handling group travel in the US and Canada and with
escorting those groups giving him a great background for the job ahead. We think you will enjoy his youthful spirit
and the ... "Let's get with it!" ... attitude he brings to NARP.
NARP National Treasurer Bob Glover, will fill us in on changes at the NARP office and our funding needs.
Member Jeff Lange will make observations about the California rail program over the past 25 years, identifying where
expectations have been exceeded and noting some of the areas where results are less satisfying and below expectations.
A former member of the NARP and TRAC Board's he is well qualified to speak on these matters.
