1991 Intercity Mission to Atlanta
Precursor to the International Study Missions
The Atlanta mission focused on that city’s efforts to position itself as an international city. We were impressed with Atlanta’s international marketing efforts under the leadership of former Mayor Andrew Young. The recruitment of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games attested to the success of Atlanta’s plan. From the 1991 trip, we expanded our focus to successful overseas trading countries with decades and centuries of experience in international trade and promotion.
