Last week, a day after ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership announced that Susan Sarfati would be stepping down as president and CEO of The Center in August, ASAE president and CEO John Graham IV acknowledged he wasn't sure if or how the association would replace her, saying, "I don't know what we'll look like at the end of August." Graham said that Sarfati's exit provides an opportunity to review the association's staff structure and make changes, if necessary. "I'm not indicating a major restructuring, but I am indicating that it is premature to fill any given position before we know what it is that actually needs filling," he explained, adding that members likely will not notice significant changes as a result of any restructuring.
