TAA Remembers Richard Hull

It is with great sadness that we announce that Richard Thompson Hull passed away on March 15, 2021. A long-time advocate of TAA, Richard was an instrumental part of the association for many years, first serving as Executive Director, then as a staff member, and finally as a member of the TAA Council, the association’s governing board.
