ICIA Veteran McGee Dies

Harry McGee, past executive vice president of the International Communications Industries Association (ICIA), died on June 13, 2003, at his home in Daytona Beach Shores, Florida, after a two-year battle with cancer. He was 74. McGee began his career with the National Audio-Visual Association (NAVA, now ICIA) in 1965 as the association's convention director. He was then named executive vice president upon the resignation of NAVA's first executive vice president, Don White. In this role, McGee saw the need to take NAVA's focus from regional and national to international and led the effort to change the association's name to the International Communications Industries Association. Under his leadership, ICIA began to hold Institute for Professional Development courses at InfoComm, and he initiated efforts to rejuvenate the entire ICIA educational curriculum.
