He has served as the past president of IAHTM, ARTA, and a board member of HLAC. Currently, he is a regional board member of the Indiana Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Bill Moyer of HCSC says what he admires most about McCauley is “not just that he is a fellow Penn State grad, but his steady growth and vast knowledge he has attained within the industry”.

Paul Seigel, a long-time industry veteran, with over 39 years in the field. He has worked at various organizations, including Kawartha Hospital Linen Services, Booth Centennial Hospital Laundry Services, and Kingston Regional Hospital Laundry.

Seigel was a steadfast supporter, association treasurer for 10 years, and an ever-present guiding force within IAHTM for almost 30 years. In addition, his willingness to dedicate his time and knowledge to IAHTM members is absolutely invaluable to the organization. Meredith Bowery of Virginia Healthcare Laundry Services notes that Paul Seigel gave everyone patience, calm, and a welcoming attitude.
