Paul Ruden, executive vice president for legal and industry affairs for American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA), will retire Sept. 30. He has been with the trade association since 1990 — additionally working as outside counsel for ASTA for 11 years prior to joining to the staff — with responsibilities that have included all of ASTA’s internal and external legal activities, industry policy, state and federal legislation and consumer affairs.

Ruden and ASTA are finalizing the details of a continued relationship, and ASTA will soon begin a search for his replacement.
