Our AAACN community is deeply saddened at the loss of Pat Reichart, former longtime Director of Association Services. Pat was loved and respected for her service to AAACN as she worked to support members, volunteers, and leaders for many years. We consider her dedication instrumental to the success AAACN is experiencing today.
Pat's association management career at Anthony J. Jannetti, Inc. (AJJ), AAACN's management firm, spanned 24 years, with more than 13 of those years managing AAACN's daily operations.
She retired in June 2016, and enjoyed the last few years spending time with her two granddaughters, traveling, quilting, and enjoying time with her husband Marty, who also was employed by AJJ.
When she retired, Pat said that “Working for AAACN and its amazing members has been the most satisfying and enjoyable position. I have always said, ‘I should have been a nurse. Working with and helping nurses achieve their goals has been the next best thing.’”
