    On August 14, 2014, the American Accounting Association lost one if its own:  Kathy Casper. Many of you got to know Kathy during her 16 years with the Association.  As the Web and Database Project Manager, she was instrumental in moving us into the 21st century.  In fact, she worked on early web pages and independently designed, developed and implemented our annual meeting system, enhancing it annually based on the feedback she received from the many volunteers who worked with her. She also implemented the new segment meeting system that was introduced over the past year.

    Outside of work, Kathy was very active in the Faith Lutheran Church where she provided service in many ways.  Having done missionary work in Haiti in 2005, Kathy was devoted to fundraising for Haitian children's education and care.  She was also a passionate writer, publishing many articles and poetry.

    Kathy’s quick wit, creativity, broad smile and kind heart will be deeply missed by all who knew her.  If you have memories of Kathy you’d like to share with her sister and three daughters, please email them to  Additionally, in Kathy’s honor, charitable donations can be made to the Faith Lutheran Church for the Haiti Fund care of Faith Lutheran Church, 7750 Beneva Road, Sarasota, FL.

      My sincerest condolences to her family and friends. She was great to work with and was so patient with me as she taught me how to use the AAA system. What a wonderful person to work with.

      Kathleen was a very helpful person.  I remember contacting her a few times for fixing issues with the website in the past.  She worked through with me till these issues were resolved.  A great person to work with.  May her soul rest in peace.  -Atul Rai

      I just read this news and was shocked. I can remember Ms. Cathy well as she was always very helpful to me in resolving web related issues or problems. AAA and all of us associated with the institution certainly lost a great person.

      May her soul rest in peace! My heart-felt condolence to her family!

      Thank you Kathy for your wonderful years of service to the staff,the  AAA administration and members, and in particular to the Ethics Research Symposium in 2012 when you created a special website for us, made it possible to post, to update and to remove papers and abstracts with ease.  In your doing this, we were able create a dynamic book of abstracts for the meetings which we were able to reference.  You did all this with so much ease that we often missed your corrections to our little errors we made along the way, presented like your humor, in the most discreet and subtle ways.

      May you rest in peace,

      John Sennetti
