Dear Friends,

Thank you for your ongoing support of Trees Atlanta.

On May 15, Marcia Bansley will close 26 years as the guiding light of Trees Atlanta. Marcia has been the Executive Director of Trees Atlanta since its beginning in 1985. Her outstanding leadership, dedication and energy have been the driving force behind the success and growth of Trees Atlanta.

Marcia has decided to spread her wings to further develop her growing international non-profit consultancy and love of architecture. Thankfully, she will continue to be involved with Trees Atlanta as an advocate and fundraiser.

At this time, the Board is pleased to announce that Connie Veates, the immediate past President of the Trees Atlanta Board of Directors, has agreed to serve as Interim Executive Director.
