Remembering John Graham IV, FASAE, CAE

We are saddened to learn of the passing of John Graham IV, FASAE, CAE, president and CEO of ASAE The Center for Association Leadership. John was a thoughtful, dynamic leader who will be missed by all of us in the association community.

The official ASAE statement regarding John's passing is below. We remember John as a leader who believed in the potential of everyone, and in the positivity that could arise when like-minded groups of people come together for the common good, as he eloquently stated in an interview from August 2016:

"I think that everybody can learn from everyone else. I think younger people can learn from older people’s experiences. I think the older generation can learn from younger people ... and I think it’s important to have diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Exposure to different ages, genders and lifestyles will add to the development of any individual, whether you’re a senior person or a junior person. Ultimately, that’s good for all of us."

“Naylor has been an excellent partner in providing very professional, diligent services. Their sales staff is careful in working with us, which is important because ABA has important relationships with vendors that Naylor is selling ad space to and we don’t want to step on each other’s toes. They are very cooperative and customer-focused, always making sure we’re happy.”

Charlotte F. Birch, Senior Vice President, Member Communications, American Bankers Association

We currently use Naylor for print and digital [communications]. The results have been fantastic. We added an extra issue of the magazine and enhanced our digital presence, with rave reviews from our members. Our revenue has grown each year, with a 22% increase in 2015. Our magazine holds an 87% advertiser renewal rate. I would highly recommend Naylor to any company or association.

Jean Godwin, Executive VP & General Counsel, American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA)

The experience was very positive and I was glad to partake in the event! I was personally impressed with the quality of candidates, specifically the fact that they took time to research our opportunities online, and had a clear purview of what lines of business interest them.

Laura Vaccaro, HR Recruiter, TD Bank

“When we engaged Naylor, we were told they could facilitate all of our needs from design and hosting to ongoing support, and that they would be our ‘one stop shop’ for issue resolution. Having a single vendor was the first priority for us.”

Phil Newsum, Executive Director at Association of Diving Contractors International (ADCI)
