On behalf of the AANA Board and Executive Team I am deeply saddened to share the news of the death of former Board Director Sam Smith, who joined the AANA Board in 2017. Clearly this is dreadful news. Sam was a very enthusiastic member of the AANA and a popular Board member. His support for the AANA was unquestioned and he will be missed by his colleagues and the broader AANA community. On behalf of all my colleagues at the AANA, our heartfelt condolences go out to Sam’s partner, family and friends. Sam was a real pleasure to work with and he will be sorely missed by us all.
