J. Clarke Price, Former Chair of OSAE, Has Passed Away
He was an influential and committed servant leader
Yesterday morning, the Ohio Society of Association Professionals (OSAP) learned our former Chair Clarke Price passed away unexpectedly earlier this week. Price, FASAE, CAE, was the retired president and CEO of the Ohio Society of CPAs, past chair of the OSAP (OSAE at the time of his service) board of directors and past chair of the ASAE board of directors.
"Clarke was a mentor, friend and true servant leader," said Jarrod A. Clabaugh, CAE, OSAP's president & CEO. "His impact remains indelible and his shadow shall never be filled. The state and nation would not be the same for the association industry without the fiery and passionate leadership of our friend. To say he'll be missed is the greatest understatement I could ever make."
On behalf of the OSAP and OSAP Foundation Boards of Directors, our organizations extend our sincerest condolences to Clarke's family and countless friends. His leadership and commitment to the industry impacted us all and will continue to do so through the role he played in so many lives.
Once we've more information, we'll share it with the membership. At this time, the family has not announced memorial plans.
