For most of a decade, Philip Gerard’s service to our association was unparalleled, as I learned firsthand when I joined AWP’s Board of Directors at the 1998 annual conference in Portland, Oregon. Philip was completing a two-year stint as Board President, after serving for years as Program Directors Council Chair and as a board advisor.
