In addition to the structure itself, the building sits in a beautiful venue just off the busy streets of Buckhead. Created by a golf course designer, the Lenox Park development offers “residents” many amenities: walking trails and green space, outdoor eating, and proximity to shopping and hotels. Our employees have access to many of the amenities AT&T offers its staff, including a fitness center, cafeteria, and mobile-device store on the property. It is these types of employee benefits that encourage work–life balance and job satisfaction, and ultimately lead to greater staff retention.

Beyond the potential cost savings, the adequate space for staff and growth, and the idyllic setting, the new building offers members a physical presence. Like many of our sister organizations, the ACR now has a space to represent our members and a base for our mission of advancing rheumatology and the care of patients with rheumatic disease. So the next time you are in Atlanta, be sure to visit the ACR’s new home in Buckhead. You will be impressed by our new home and what we’ve done with the place.
I wanted our members to be aware of this step that the ACR has taken to enhance our ability to achieve our mission. By controlling costs and ensuring adequate space for business operations, we are poised to deal with the changes facing us over the next decade. In next month’s “President’s Perspective,” I will address the many efforts the organization has been pursuing to make sure our voice is being heard in the healthcare debate.
