Georgia also chaired previously both the Accessorial Services Committee and the Claims Committee, and is currently a member of the Government and Congressional Affairs Committee along with a member of the Alan F. Wohlstetter Scholarship Fund Board.   Georgia contributed to the development of the IAM Technology Partnership involving customs regulations, The Shipper’s Guide, the Code of Ethics, the expansion of the Association Member’s Management Board, the Receivable Protection Plan, the Hall of Honor, and the association’s initiatives to enhance communications with members.   Georgia also contributed to the military’s development of the Department of Defense DP3 (formerly Families First) program and served on several Business Process Working Groups (BPWGs) examining the requirements and administrations of a quality based DOD personal Property Program.
