Vincent D. Keenan, CAE Retiring as IAFP CEO

After 31 years of service to IAFP and a fulfilling career, I would like to thank you for your trust and confidence in permitting me to serve this honorable specialty and grow alongside family medicine. It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement from the Illinois Academy of Family Physicians as of December 31, 2020. I am leaving the organization, but I am taking the lessons learned, special memories, and friendships with me. While I look forward to my next chapter, I would like to stay in touch with you, whether it is through Facebook, LinkedIn or a visit! Call me to say hello, seek the advice of an elder, or just see to see what adventures I am engaged in. Thank you for making my “work” a real pleasure.

Succeeding me, the IAFP Board of Directors carefully evaluated and selected Gordana Krkic, CAE and Jennifer O’Leary, as the IAFP’s co-CEOs beginning January 1, 2021. Gordana is IAFP’s Chief Advocacy and Policy Officer and has been with IAFP since January 1997. Jennifer is IAFP’s Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer, and has been with IAFP since August 1992.

Thank you for allowing me to fulfill my motto, “I live to serve.” I have thoroughly enjoyed working with many of you and for all of the Illinois Academy of Family physician members.  View Vince's 2019 Blog Post sharing memories from 30 years at IAFP. 

I will miss all of you very much.  

Vincent Keenan, MSPH, CAE
Illinois Academy of Family Physicians
