RABO and the Tom Rice Group share the holiday spirit
Close to a hundred RABO South members and the Tom Rice Group gathered on Wednesday, December 14 at the Jacksonville Golf and Country Club to celebrate the holiday season. After a social hour of renewing old railroad friendships and catching up from the “working days” a delicious holiday meal was enjoyed. Michael Ward, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer and Clarence Gooden, President of CSX were guest speakers and joined the group for lunch and to talk about the state of the railroad. They provided insight on the impact the economy is having on railroad business in general, how CSX is changing their business approach to be more competitive in the marketplace and what we should expect in 2017. The next RABO South meeting will be in March, 2017 and at that time an election of officers will be held.
