We learned from her husband, Ron Gerard, that former USBF President Joan Gerard passed away early on the morning of April 5th. Joan was a member of the USBF Board from 2007 through 2012, and President from 2011-2012. She was also the USBF Meeting Planner for her entire term on the Board and continued in that role this year. We will miss her cheerful, efficient support, and extend our sympathy to her husband Ron.
