ROGER RABER

Dr. Roger W. Raber, whose advocacy work helped to usher in the modern era of corporate governance, died peacefully at his home in Washington, DC, on October 10, 2017. He was 74. The cause was complications from Alzheimer’s disease.

Roger was born in Jamaica, New York. After attending Saint Anthony College in New Hampshire, he received a BA in Philosophy and an M.A. in Theology and Religious Education from Manhattan College. He later received an MA and doctorate in Administration in Higher Education from Teachers College at Columbia University. From an early interest in theology, his career evolved from educational administration to professional education, this latter area focused at first in banking and later in corporate governance.

Dr. Raber served as director of admissions at the City University of New York in the early 1970s, and as Deputy Provost at the College at Old Westbury, State University of New York, later that decade. In 1980, he became director of education for the National Association of Mutual Savings Banks in New York City, and for the next two decades he would apply his educational expertise in the banking field, moving on to become an executive vice president of the National Council of Community Bankers; president and CEO of the Center for Financial Studies in Connecticut; and managing director, member services, at America’s Community Bankers.

While living in Connecticut he chaired the Weston, Connecticut School District, elected by the Weston residents to restore the integrity of the school system following several crises. During the 1980s he served as a director of Starpointe Savings Bank, staying on the board while it integrated into Dime Savings of New York. In 1999, he began his service as president and CEO of the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), serving for the next seven years in this capacity, where he built an organization that was strong both financially and culturally. In his role as CEO, he responded at a personal level to NACD members affected by the tragedy of September 11, 2001, strengthened by his faith.

His ability to steer through crisis would be tested at the national level soon thereafter following the December 2001 bankruptcy of Enron, when he testified on the nature of good governance to Congress. His remarks were influential in determining the governance standards later set by the major stock exchanges.

During his tenure at NACD, paid membership grew from 1,800 to 10,000. He developed educational partnerships with a variety of organizations, including Dartmouth College, University of Southern California, Rice University, Duke University, and University of Georgia and created relationships with Association of Corporate Counsels, Financial Executives International, National Investor Relations Institute, America’s Community Banks, Executive Leadership Council, World Bank/IFC) and several governance institutes in Asia, Central Europe, and Latin America. He also established strategic alliances with several leading professional Institutional Shareholder Services, the Nasdaq Stock Market, New York Stock Exchange, major D&O insurers, and leading professional service providers. Dr. Raber had a special love for the nonprofit sector. He formed a Not-for-Profit Council at NACD, and conducted the first surveys of not-for-profit governance. And although he presented boardroom education programs to many of the nation’s largest public companies, his most treasured assignment was his work with the board of the American Red Cross. He practiced what he preached about governance, ensuring that NACD would have an independent and diverse board and strong bench strength. Many of the employees he mentored are still with NACD, including its current leader. Thus the Raber legacy lives on.

During his years at NACD and after retirement, he served in many advisory roles. He was a member of the board of overseers of Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Program at the U.S. Department of Commerce, and an advisory board member at the University of Delaware, Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance. He also served on the board of Washington Campus, a nonprofit facilitating a better understanding of government. His professional engagements in the NACD years included service as an advisory board member to CFM Partners in Washington, DC (banking education), James F. Reda & Associates in New York and Atlanta, a compensation practice (now part of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.), and the Project Management Institute.

In 2007, after stepping down from NACD leadership to serve as a senior advisor to the organization, he continued some of his advisory roles. In 2010, he was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, and faced into the disease with all the energy and good cheer he had given his life’s earlier missions. He agreed to participate in two clinical studies at the Memory Disorders Program at Georgetown University Medical Center.

During these seven years as he came to terms with the disease, he continued his volunteer work with the West End Library, as well as So Others Might Eat, and Miriam’s Kitchen, two social service programs for the homeless population in Washington, DC. Always a family man, his final years were full of joy as his beloved children themselves became parents. His last gift of many to humanity was the donation of his brain to Georgetown University Medical Center for further research with Alzheimer’s disease.

He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Dr. Marie Raber, Associate Dean of the School of Social Work at Catholic University; their son, Commander Roger W. Raber, Jr., U.S.N.R., his wife Heather, and their two sons, Jack and Elliot; as well as their daughter, Robyn Borgelt, her husband, Nate and their children, Anna and William.

Michael P. Carey
Obituary

LOUDONVILLE

Michael “Mike” Patrick Carey, 69, of Loudonville peacefully passed away on Tuesday, July 11, 2017, surrounded by family at Albany Medical Center, due to complications from A.L.S.

Born in Albany on July 15, 1947, he was the son of William Joseph Carey and Rosemary Travison Carey. A graduate of the Christian Brothers Academy, Michael played football and was voted a member of the All-Albany team in 1965. He continued to play at Manhattan College, where he earned his teaching degree.

Mike began his career as an elementary school physical education teacher, and also coached football at Philip Schuyler High School. He later earned a master’s degree in health education from Russell Sage College. Mike served many years in the Albany School District, first as a teacher and football coach, then as the director of transportation, and finally as the long-time principal of School 20 in North Albany, now known as North Albany Academy.

Following retirement in 2003, he returned to football coaching at C.B.A. He also spent many years coaching softball in the West Albany little league. In addition to his love of sports, Mike was a long-time supporter of the American Legion in Albany as a “Sons of” member, and a member of the Albany Elks Lodge #49, the North Albany Limericks, the Ancient Order of the Hibernians, and the Albany Polish-American Citizens Club. An avid follower of politics, he offered his time in the community as an election inspector.

After suffering a paralyzing fall in 2009, Mike made a full recovery and was inspired to volunteer at Albany Medical Center. His duties included being a “friendly visitor,” especially to patients dealing with spinal cord injuries. He was proud to be honored with the “Volunteer of the Month” award at Albany Med.

He was training for the Pastoral Care program through St. Pius X when he fell ill.

Mike is survived by his wife of 44 years, Patricia Carey of Loudonville; his son, Matthew Carey of Albany; his daughter, Colleen Luther (Kyle) of Loudonville; his daughter, Megan Geltman (Randy) of San Antonio, Texas; his adoring granddaughters, Ennea and Aliera Luther; his younger siblings, Kathleen Henkel (Hank), Robert Carey (Diane), Maryann Ryan (Kevin), and Nancy Chamberlain; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He was predeceased by his parents and brother-in law, William Chamberlain.

The family would like extend thanks to those who helped Mike during his struggle with A.L.S., especially Mike Brady, Robert Carey, Nancy Chamberlain, Donna Coonley-Hotaling, Frank Owens, Tom Quinlivan, Jimmy Smith, Jerry Spicer, and Rosemary Wolfgang, as well as the doctors, staff and volunteers at Albany Med and the St. Peter’s Regional ALS Center.

Relatives and friends are invited to visit with Michael’s family, Friday, July 14, from 4 to 7 p.m. at St. Pius X Church, Loudonville. Funeral services, Saturday, July 15, at 9:30 a.m. at St. Pius X Church, Loudonville where his funeral Mass will be celebrated. The Rite of Committal will be held in St. Agnes Cemetery, Menands immediately following the funeral Mass. In lieu of flowers, Michael requested that any memorial contributions be made to the St. Peter’s Regional ALS Center, 19 Warehouse Row, Albany NY 12205 or the North Albany Academy, 570 North Pearl St., Albany NY 12204.
