Great River Chapter Founder and Former President: Roland Clavien

    ​​It is with great sadness that I share of the passing of Mr. Roland Clavien.  Roland started the American Society of Military Comptrollers Great River Chapter when he arrived in Vicksburg, MS as ERDC's Director of Resource Management in 2002.  As the chapter's president for many years, Roland was instrumental in the growth and success of the Great River Chapter.  It was obvious to all the pride he took in watching the chapter grow and flourish as it reached many in the Financial Management world.  Roland was very competitive and worked hard to ensure our chapter reached and maintained 5 star status along with other awards on the national level.  Roland had a natural talent for writing and enjoyed providing the very informative chapter newsletters each month.  He also loved animals and volunteered many hours during our community service projects with PAWS Rescue.  Roland will be greatly missed!  Please keep Roland's family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

    I pray for his family, friends, and fellow ASMC chapter members for strength and providence as they lament, bereave, and celebrate Roland's life here on earth. His trials now are past, his triumph has begun. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18

    As I mentioned to Cheryl previously, I was very sorry to hear of Roland Clavien's passing.  It occurs to me that Roland was among the first few chapter presidents with whom I talked when I came aboard at ASMC as Executive Director about seven years ago.  As a matter in fact he invited me to speak at the Great River Chapter's Mini-PDI, and it was my first introduction to chapter level PDIs.  It was very well done and I was impressed as to how enthusiastic the members were about the Mini-PDI, their chapter, and their professional responsibilities as members of our defense financial management community.  I know that was all a result of Roland and the other chapter officers' leadership and I'm also sure the chapter is just as vibrant today under the leadership of Cheryl and current chapter officers.  Keeping Roland's family and friends in my thoughts and prayers.  Al

    I know this is outside of ASMC, but still within the government world, but The Honorable Gerald J. Mossinghoff, former Assistant Secretary of Commerce and Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks, also passed very recently.
