Pauline Saliga, SAH Executive Director | Jul 14, 2016
In May 2016 after a successful SAH annual conference in Pasadena, Kathy Sturm, SAH’s director of programs, decided to retire. Kathy, who came to SAH in 2006, worked tirelessly on managing 10 SAH annual conferences, dozens of study tours and study days, hundreds of fellowships and book awards, and thousands of AIA/CES accredited programs. SAH members who worked closely with Kathy as officers, chairs of conferences, and leaders of study programs appreciated her sense of humor, attention to detail, open-minded acceptance of change, and deep commitment to SAH’s educational mission. At the end of any program, Kathy always said, “It will be better next year,” and that is exactly what we hope for Kathy in retirement. We wish her joy with her grandchildren and lots of time on the sunny beaches of Lake Michigan. We all will miss Kathy a great deal.
