The association said in an email that Triplett had cancer and died Thursday.

A spokeswoman for Bloomberg BNA said he died in Alabama, where he was visiting family. He lived in Washington.

Triplett was a board member and then president of the Washington chapter of NLGJA. He became president of the national group last year.

Triplett worked on the daily tax report at Bloomberg BNA. He had worked with BNA since 2000.

BNA was acquired by Bloomberg in 2011. He was a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia and the American University Washington College of Law.
