AAR to hold '08 customer forum at NARS' San Francisco meeting


For the fifth-consecutive year, the Association of American Railroads (AAR) is conducting a forum so shippers can voice their concerns to senior Class I officers. And for the second-straight year, the event will be held in conjunction with the North American Rail Shippers Association's (NARS) annual meeting.

To be held May 19 at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco, the 2008 North American Railroads Customer Forum is co-sponsored by the AAR and NARS. Scheduled from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., the forum will feature a panel discussion with Class I chief marketing officers moderated by AAR President and Chief Executive Officer Edward Hamberger, and break-out sessions offering shippers a chance to meet informally with the officers.

NARS will conduct its 2008 annual meeting May 18-20 at the Parc 55 Hotel.

For more information on the customer forum, call the AAR at 202-639-2100 or log onto
