We are saddened to announce that advisory board member and longtime CIPUSA advocate and friend Seth Taft passed away on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at his home. 

CIPUSA President & CEO Lisa Purdy remembers Mr. Taft not only as a benefactor and one of the most influential figures in the organizations history, but also as a mentor: "Seth was a devoted board member to the Cleveland International Program as well as CIPUSA. I will never forget his wonderful spirit and positive outlook on life. He was an ambassador to the world. I learned a lot from him as a young nonprofit manager. He will truly be missed."
