In Memoriam: Joseph G. Acker
December 07, 2010
SOCMA 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.
What Members Are Saying…
“SOCMA has had an extraordinary impact on the success of our business. There is no doubt that without SOCMA we definitely would not be as successful as we are today. The organization is an invaluable resource. We don’t part with dues dollars lightly, but believe every dollar spent with SOCMA has provided immeasurable returns.”
