J. Clarke Price, president and CEO of the Ohio Society of CPAs, began his volunteer chairmanship of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) at its annual meeting in August. Price is the first state CPA society executive to serve as chair of ASAE, according to Cynthia Lund, AICPA vice president–State Society Affairs. “Clarke continues to be one of the AICPA’s and the profession’s most enthusiastic champions,” Lund said, and his work on behalf of the profession has earned him the AICPA Distinguished Service Award, among other distinctions throughout his career.
The ASAE’s mission is “to help associations transform society through the power of collaborative action,” according to its Web site (www.asaecenter.org). The society has more than 22,000 association CEOs, staff professionals, industry partners and consultant members.
