We are very sad to share the news of the passing of ASAEs President and CEO John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE. Our thoughts and prayers are with John's family and the association community.
It is with great sadness that ASAE announces the passing of its President and CEO John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE, after an extended battle with cancer. On behalf of ASAE's Board of Directors, staff, members, industry partners and other stakeholders, we extend our deepest sympathies to John's family.
While no words can adequately express our deep sorrow at losing our leader, the ASAE team is profoundly grateful for the opportunity to know and work with John. Graham was a transformative leader for ASAE and a mentor to many in the association community. During his tenure, which began August 1, 2003, ASAE more than doubled its membership and developed a wealth of innovative products and services to benefit association professionals and their partners. Graham leaves behind an organization marking its centennial in 2020, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of ASAE's work moving forward.
