Thank You, Jerry Ward!

The Alliance would like to thank Jerry Ward, Vice President of Operations at Seats, Inc., who is officially retiring in August, for his contributions to The Alliance and his community. 

Jerry was instrumental in Seats, Inc. joining The Alliance in 1994, where he served as our Board Chair in 2001 and 2005. Jerry is a powerful advocate for better health care delivery and a member of our Health Policy committee. Jerry oversaw the implementation of an on-site clinic at Seats, Inc. and just this past February, spoke to Governor Tony Evers’ Task Force on Reducing Prescription Drug Prices. 
The Alliance wishes you well in retirement, Jerry!
