In Memoriam: Joseph G. Acker

December 07, 2010

Joe AckerSOCMA mourns the passing of former president and CEO, Joe Acker, who died on December 6 following a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

Joe retired from SOCMA last December, after 16 years of combined service and dedication to the organization. As president, he propelled SOCMA to new heights by raising its profile on Capitol Hill, solidifying key alliances with regulatory agencies, growing its international membership base and encouraging all members to take a more active role in the association’s lobbying efforts.

He will be deeply missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Judy, and their entire family.

“In today’s business environment, it is not enough to know what has happened. It is really not much better to know what is going to happen. SOCMA provides a way for members to influence what is going to happen.”
