“I’m truly honored in receiving this award,” said John H. Graham IV, CAE. “Throughout my career, I’ve always strived to educate different publics about the value of associations in our society. Our community faced several challenges this year, and our members came together to advocate on these issues, which could have impacted how we provided services and learning opportunities for the members we represent. Next year, my goal is to continue to raise awareness about policy issues and moving the association profession forward.”

The Association Executive of the Year Award is awarded to the chief staff executive of a national association or professional society, who has shown exemplary leadership and embodies the very best values of professionalism, creativity, and commitment to the association community.
