In Memoriam: James Pace
James Pace, GSAE Board of Directors member, passed away on March 29. James joined the Georgia Society of Association Executives in 2002 and immediately became a significant volunteer devoted to the success of the society. He was the first co-chair of GSAE’s Communications Shared Interest Group, which brought together professionals from across the Southeast to share best practices. He never missed a GSAE Annual Meeting, from Savannah, GA, to Nashville, TN, to Greenville, SC. In 2019, James joined the GSAE Board of Directors for a two-year term. James was best known among his colleagues for having a "smile that brightened every event,” but he also approached his role as a volunteer director with thoughtfulness and thorough preparation. He always put the needs of GSAE’s members and the mission of the society first. He was a beloved member of the GSAE community, and his wisdom and good cheer will be sorely missed. We will celebrate James' many contributions during a future GSAE event. Please keep James' mom, family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
