Association of Administrative Department
Heads

Department of Aviation

Dear Grady:

Please convey to the membership of the Department Heads Association my deepest
apologies for not appearing as scheduled at the meeting last night.

There is no way to adequately express my embarrassment over this monumental
goof. During the past few years I have made several hundred addresses to various
clubs and organizations and had not until now just plain not appeared. To have it
happen with any group is bad enough, but to not show with as important a body as
the City Department Heads is utterly disastrous.

As a partial explanation as to how I could possibly have forgotten such a meeting,
I can only recall that yesterday was an extremely hectic day with our staff all

frantically preparing for our annual meeting tomorrow. I spent the morning con-
ducting a meeting for Atlanta PTA presidents and safety chairmen and was then in

the office until 7:00 p.m. getting ready for the annual meeting. I then headed home
without ever having looked at my calendar and with a thousand loose ends for the

meeting in my mind. All of which is not an excuse or even a very good explanation.

1 am particularly appreciative of the Department Heads going ahead and discussing
the Defensive Driving program and hope I will be able to make partial amends by
holding a worthwhile program for those who are able to make it. I will be in touch
with Earl Landers to arrange details.

Again, please express my sincerest apologies and regrets. Knowing what a fine
bunch of people the City Department Heads are, I will have to hope that they will
