A Special President’s Message:
Leonard J. Aube, 1959-2015

With great sadness, I learned that our friend and colleague Leonard Aube, Executive Director of the Annenberg Foundation, has passed away after his battle with cancer. Len’s vision and leadership made us all better at what we do. His sense of fairness – always doing the right thing with humility – will be what I always remember and cherish. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and to our colleagues at the Annenberg Foundation.

We encourage your continued feedback as we finalize the Assumptions. For example, are these findings consistent with your organization’s experience, or do you have a different perspective?
