“Meet the Council” event took place of the May 2011 meeting of the Metro-North Railroad Commuter Council (MNRCC).
On Thursday, May 19th, the MNRCC greeted riders outside the Station Master’s Office in Grand Central Terminal (GCT) from 4:30-6:30pm. The event replaced the Council’s regular May meeting. On hand to speak with riders were members Jim Blair, David Buchwald and Randy Glucksman. They were assisted by Executive Director Bill Henderson, and Research Associate Karyl Berger. Special thanks also go to Gabriella Vazquez, MNR Special Events Coordinator, GCT, and Mark Mannix, Senior Director of Corporate and Community Affairs, for their invaluable assistance in arranging this program.
The members chatted with riders and passed out informational flyers on the Council’s activities and the upcoming President’s Forum, which will be held on June 8th from 5-7pm in the MTA 5th Floor Boardroom at Headquarters (347 Madison Avenue). At the Forum MNR President Permut and his senior staff will be on hand to answer riders questions and hear comments. Posters announcing the Forum are now at stations.
