by ron.ptaszek on May 6, 2016

The next meeting of the Macomb County Republican Executive Committee will be Monday, May 9th at 7 p.m.  The meeting will be held at the Macomb Regional Field Office located at 13441 Hall Rd. in Utica, MI.

This Monday’s meeting features guest speaker Eileen Weiser.

About Mrs. Weiser:

Eileen Weiser is in her second term on the State Board of Education (1999-2006, 2011- 2018).  Her priorities on the State Board are raising student achievement and improving teacher preparation and training.

Mrs. Weiser holds piano performance degrees from Michigan State University (B.M.1972) and the University of Michigan (M.M., 1975).  As executive director of the McKinley Foundation, Weiser coordinated community projects to initiate a countywide family literacy campaign, aid in the implementation of a K-6 public school curriculum project, and convert an old scrapyard into a center for local nonprofit art and human service foundations. She was recognized for her work by the Detroit Free Press and has been named one of “Detroit’s Most Influential Women” and Michigan’s Arts Patron of the Year.

She has participated in numerous state and national study groups on education issues.  She served two terms as a board member for the National Assessment Governing Board, which sets policy for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP, or The Nation’s Report Card).  She has served on the boards of The Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), Michigan’s Attorney Discipline Board, the Midwest Higher Education Compact (MHEC), and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, the state’s cultural grantmaker.  She currently serves on the Board of the Michigan Science Center.

Mrs. Weiser lived with her family in the Slovak Republic from 2001-2004 while her husband, the Honorable Ronald Weiser, served there as U.S. Ambassador. They and their young son Daniel reside in Ann Arbor, Michigan with two married children and five grandchildren living nearby.

Proxy Information:

If an Executive Committee member cannot attend, that person can designate a proxy to attend on their behalf.  To do this, the member may simply send me an email indicating a desire to send a proxy and include the name of the individual who will be the proxy.  Note that per the bylaws, we will be tracking attendance of Executive Committee members as accumulated unexcused absences could lead to removal from the Executive Committee (see Article II, Section 6, Part D).
