Since 1980, Kathy Blackmon has been a staple member of not only the AARC Family but also the AARC Conventions & Meetings department. Now, after 40 years of dedicated service to the Association, Kathy is ready for a well-deserved retirement. This is truly an end of an era for the AARC. Kathy’s last day with the AARC will be Friday, May 7.
“Kathy Blackmon IS the AARC,” said AARC Chief Operating Officer Doug Laher, MBA, CAE, CMP, RRT, FAARC. “She has been woven into the fabric of this organization for more than 40 years. The Summer Forum. AARC Congress. They are the meetings they are today because of Kathy Blackmon.”
Anyone who has attended an AARC event has experienced the work of Kathy.
“Meeting rooms are set to perfection because of Kathy. Audio visual, lighting, food & beverages — even registration — have been flawlessly executed because of Kathy Blackmon,” Laher said. “It all happens because of her meticulous planning. And for that, we are all grateful.”
The AARC wishes the best for Kathy in her retirement. Colleagues and AARC members alike have been greatly benefitted by Kathy’s continued commitment, wisdom, and immense experience.
