‘From: Dan Sweat

The Private Employment Task Force of the National Urban Coalition
has scheduled a regional conference on expanding private employment
in Atlanta on December 13. The conference will last for the better
part of the day and will involve nationally known business officials and
others who will discuss ways their companies have helped to reduce
unemployment or provide additional job opportunities and advancement
for the low-income people.

As part of our local contribution to the program, it has been suggested
that the slide program on employment developed by the Human Resources
group be presented to the Coalition meeting. This Human Resources
group is made up of representatives of the City of Atlanta, Community
Council, Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, and Economic Opportunity
Atlanta, Inc. FE

The slide program has been developed over the last eighteen months
period and is designed to present to the private businessman of
Atlanta the picture on unemployment and programs designed to combat
the problem. A preview of the slide program has been scheduled for
3:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 8, in Committee Room 1 of City

The Mayor and other members of the Local Coalition Steering Committee
are being invited to attend to critique the presentation along with Bob
Wood of the Merit Employers Association and one or two other con-
cerned individuals.

I hope that your schedule will permit your attending this preview. It
should last about an hour,
