AIFS Pays Tribute to Henry C. (Hank) Kahn, Former AIFS President

It is with great sadness that AIFS has learned of the passing of Henry C. (Hank) Kahn on February 7, 2009. AIFS pays tribute to its former President. The thoughts and prayers of the AIFS family worldwide are with the Kahn family.

From William L. Gertz, President and CEO of AIFS:

"Hank led AIFS through the 1970's and 1980's, a period of great growth for the Institute. He was instrumental in creating the Au Pair in America program in 1986, now the world's largest cultural exchange child care program. Hank was a dedicated man who believed strongly in cultural exchange and in the AIFS mission to 'bring the world together.' He will always be remembered by the AIFS staff in Stamford and around the world."
