Stein Is New Asa President and CEO
The American Society on Aging introduced its new president and CEO Robert G. "Bob" Stein at its recent national conference in Chicago. A leader in nonprofit association management with more than three decades of experience, Stein succeeds Gloria Cavanaugh, who recently retired after 31 years at AS A's helm.
According to Robyn L. Golden, who chairs the ASA board of directors, "Bob has led membership associations serving hospitals, healthcare systems, physicians, administrators, and foundations-all in San Francisco, where ASA is based."
ASA board chair-elect Cynthia Stuen, who chaired the search committee that selected Stein, added, "We interviewed highly qualified candidates from across the nation, with impressive backgrounds in aging, healthcare and association management.
