Former Long Island Association head Matt Crosson is recovering from a stroke after an emergency surgery last month, said officials at the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, where he is now president and chief executive.

Crosson will need to go through several weeks of rehabilitation and is expected to be out until early next year, said chamber spokeswoman Cara Roberts.
