“A Retrospective Look Back, A Progressive Move Forward,” presented by the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce Foundation and McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP, begins at 11:30 a.m.

May, the District 5 commissioner, was appointed interim CEO on July 16, 2013, after Gov. Nathan Deal removed CEO Burrell Ellis from office when he was indicted on theft and racketeering charges for allegedly shaking down county vendors for campaign contributions.

The event is billed as a “candid conversation,” and May will recap his year as interim CEO and discuss progress and changes for the upcoming year.

The DeKalb History Center is in the historic DeKalb Courthouse at 101 E. Court Square. For more information, visit www.dekalbchamber.org/upcoming-event or call 404-378-8000.
