Chad Graham

President Chad Graham stepped down this week following a career change from EMS Director to managing a physician's group. Chad is still associated with Bedford County EMS but he felt he would not be able to provide the time and commitment necessary to continue TASA's progress. Chad will certainly be missed and we thank him for his vision and leadership of TASA.

Andrew Reed (Vice-President) will immediately assume the President's position.
