“Ed has played a critical role in the development and success of the association, and while we will miss him and his inspiring leadership, we wish him the best of luck in the next chapter of his life,” said AHRA President Angelic Bush, CRA, FAHRA. “When Ed joined AHRA in 2005 following an extended vacancy in the position, he quickly stabilized the board and staff and created a positive, collaborative relationship which has served us well over the years.”
