The Buckhead Coalition has taken in 12 new members, although the limited-membership organization only had three non-renewals this year. Nine of its members were reclassified as affiliate or ex-officio so that the cap would remain at 100 members.

Chapman, senior executive vice president of Duke Realty Corporation; Monye M. Connolly, president of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia; Stephen W. Dils, executive vice president and managing director of Grubb & Ellis Company; Gerry G. Hull, president and CEO of Automated Logic Corporation; Kevin M. Kern, president of Grove Street Partners; Tomas M. Lowe III, CEO of Lowe Engineers, Michael J. Robison, chairman & CEO of Lanier Parking Holdings; Carl J. Schultz Jr., managing director of Integra Realty Resources; James H. Shepherd Jr., chairman of Shepherd Center, and Michael E. Tompkins, managing partner of Julian LeCraw & Company.

In addition, Geoffrey T. Friedman, president of the Buckhead Business Association, will serve as ex-officio for the year.
