Association Community Floods Social Media With Tributes to ASAE's Graham

Graham passed away early on Jan. 13, 2020

The association world took to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social platforms this week to remember John Graham.

President and CEO of ASAE since 2003, Graham died early Monday after a battle with  cancer. ASAE’s announcement on Monday afternoon prompted a stream of tributes and memories from members, industry partners, and others in the association and nonprofit community on whom Graham had made an impact over the course of a 50-year career in nonprofit management, including 24 years at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and nine at the Boy Scouts of America.

“I had the privilege of working with John, and he was a great friend, mentor and supporter,” National Retail Federation President and CEO Matthew Shay, who served as ASAE board chair in 2017 and 2018, said in a statement. “He was a constant cheerleader for me like he was for so many others. There was no one more passionately dedicated to the association world and nonprofit community. He embodied the very best of what it means to be a service leader and will be deeply missed by all of us who knew him.”
