Meeting Room, Dress Code, & Call-in
The meeting will take place on the 12th floor of the East Tower, Suite 1252, in the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Floyd Building. You will need your photo ID to enter the elevators that will take you to the 12th floor of the East Tower.
Dress code for the meeting: Business Professional or Business Casual (or equivalent military attire).
For those not attending in person, you may participate in the meeting remotely via Microsoft Teams. Please note, this meeting is intended for in person attendance and the webinar quality is not always guaranteed. This is especially true considering the in-person meeting attendees may be wearing masks and spacing far apart, making it harder for virtual attendees to hear the meeting dialogue. We will do our best to make the meeting successful for all attendees.
Microsoft Teams meeting link will be sent to attendees who registered to attend virtually.
Parking is available in the Pete Hackney lot at 162 Jesse Hill Junior Drive SE for a flat rate of $10.00 per day (credit cards only). To access the Floyd Building, there is a pedestrian bridge on the 5th level of the Pete Hackney parking deck. Once you cross the bridge, take the stairs or elevator to the 3rd level of the Butler Parking Deck (this is parking for state employees and is not open to the public) and cross over a second pedestrian bridge to enter the building near to the East Tower Security Desk.
MARTA's Georgia State Station is on the East-West Line (Blue or Green) with an exit directly into the bottom level of the GA DNR Floyd Building. You can enter the Floyd building directly from the MARTA station, you do not need to go outside to enter from the street.
