Member Appreciation: May 2016

By AHRA Staff

Here, we warmly welcome new members, acknowledge the tenure of our most committed members, and recognize any recent successes among all members. If you would like to acknowledge a colleague, announce a promotion, or make us aware of an accomplishment please let us know.

We are sad to inform you that we recently learned of the passing of long-time AHRA member Steve Metcalf in October, 2015. Steve joined AHRA in 1976 and participated in many AHRA meetings. He served as Chair of the Finance Committee from 1984-85 and 1985-86. He then served as Treasurer on the Board of Directors from 1986-87, 1987-88, and 1988-89. He was a strong supporter of the AHRA Education Foundation and donated regularly.

AHRA past-president Howard Schwartz: “Steve Metcalf was a former AHRA National Treasurer, elected by overwhelming majorities.  He was highly respected and regarded by all who knew him and knew of him.  He was one of my favorite AHRA colleagues and confidants during my AHRA presidential and leadership years, and an early booster and cheerleader for the newly created AHRA Education Foundation. The AHRA has lost a very special person, in my estimation.”
