The International Game Fish Association’s Rob Kramer stepped down as president recently. Kramer held the position at the nonprofit recreational fishing organization in Dania Beach, Florida, for nearly 15 years.

A press release issued by IGFA said Kramer planned to “spend more time with his family and explore new challenges.”

“We have accomplished much at IGFA over the last decade and a half, broadening our international reach and refocusing the organization on its original founding purposes,” Kramer said. “It is time now to turn over the helm to new leadership that can continue the evolution well into the 21st century.”

Colleagues and friends attended a farewell party last night (Aug. 30) at The Field Irish Pub & Eatery in Fort Lauderdale.
