Ladies and Gentlemen of the Aerotropolis Leadership Board,

Attached is a spreadsheet and word document containing the members and contact
information of the new Aerotropolis Leadership Board as approved by the PTP Board of
Directors yesterday. This board replaces the Global Logistics Task force and represents a
cross functional, and cross jurisdictional leadership team charged with the oversight of our
iourney toward the development and realization of the "Aerotropolis" concept as presented by
Dr. John D. Kasarda and Dr Stephen Appold of the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise, UNC
Chapel Hill November12,2008. Their final report is entitled "The Piedmont Triad Aerotropolis
Plan: From Guidelines to lmplementation" This report is available from Dave Hauser at PTP
and accessible from their website.

Now for a few updates:

1. Friday 5129, GTCC held a press conference at the PTP office to announce the "Center
for Global Logistics" at their new Northwest campus. lt was a very good conference and
we are now underway with this exciting collaborative regional development.

2. P.T.l. Airport Authority is in the final stages of developing their Long-range land use, and
needs plan. The first draft of this plan was expected to be ready for discussion at their
Board meeting at the end of June. I have not obtained an update from Henry lssacson
on this. Perhaps he can update us. They anticipate calling a meeting of the key
adjacent county & city planning agencies thereafter to gain their input.

3. Another key planning step will be a meeting of all the regional planners and key
developers to review the Aerotropolis concept, and the P.T.l. (inside the fence) plan, so
as to begin thinking how their respective jurisdictions will fit into and can benefit the most
from the overallAerotropolis. We willtry to schedule this sometime in August.

4. Next Wednesday the 8th at 12:3O pm in Raleigh, Senator Don Vaughn has arranged a
meeting with the Triad Legislative caucus, Department of Commerce, and State
Economic development to present the Piedmont Triad Aerotropolis and what this means
to the state for growing business, jobs, and tax base. We need continued state support

of our initiative. I know it is short notice, but members of the board are invited. Please
let Dave Hauser at PTP know if you can attend. Otherwise we will assume not.

5. Lastly, I want to schedule our first meeting as a group. lt is most important that we kick
off with an affirmation of our Vision, Mission, Success Elements, and begin the
development of an action plan to get us there. I was last considering sometime between
Tuesday, July 7th and Friday July 17th, but based on feedback received, this is not good
timing due to vacations. I would like for all of you to look at the weeks of August 10 and
August 17th, preferably the week of the 1Oth and PLEASE FURNISH DATES AND
TIMES YOU ARE AVAILABLE during this time frame to Dave Hauser at PTP so we can
nail down a meeting time that will suit the most.

Iwant to thank all of you for agreeing to serve on the Aerotropolis Leadership Board, and also
thank all the other leaders of the Triad Region that will drive our success this important
endeavor.

I welcome feedback and suggestions from anyone addressed or copied on this email.

Sincerely,

David S. Congdon
