Vale - Sue Gherdovich
Sue Gherdovich, AAG Senior Policy & Research Officer sadly passed away just prior to Christmas. In line and respecting Sue’s family’s wishes, AAG have kept details private, but understand the need for other members to be aware of the loss. For those who have engaged with her, Sue was a thoughtful, kind and gentle soul and will be missed. Sue’s passing was very sad news at the end of a very challenging year.
