June 18, 2020

The Michigan Association of Community and Adult Education is announcing several exciting leadership changes to be in effect on July 1st.

Tammy Brown will assume the role of President of the Board of Directors of MACAE.  Bob Steeh will now assume the role of Past President.  We thank him for his many years of service to MACAE.

Tammy currently serves as the Director of Continuing Education at Troy Public Schools.  In this capacity she oversees adult ESL/ABE/HSE/HSC instruction and workforce readiness, Integrated English Literacy and Civics Education(IELCE), and Integrated Education and Training (IET) for over 600 participants along with middle and high school summer school district programming administering over 1600 summer classes.  She was the President of Oakland County Community and Adult Educators (OCCAE) for the past 8 years, transitioning to the Legislative representative for 2020-21.  Tammy also sits on the Oakland County Career and Educational Advisory Council (CEAC) and is part of an ongoing Oakland County Strategic Planning committee. She stated “I am very excited for the new challenges this position entails, and very grateful that Bob will be continuing as an active member to support the transition.  Taking over this presidency during a world-wide pandemic brings with it even more challenges than expected, but I am ready to do the work needed to support our members to the best of my ability. Fortunately, MACAE has amazing board members and staff with the same mentality, we are ready to do the work, and I have a very strong staff in Troy to continue our work there when I am supporting MACAE.  I am honored with the trust our members have placed in my hands and hope all members know that they can come to MACAE with any challenges and/or innovative ideas and we will be there to help them succeed!”

In more leadership news, the MACAE Board of Directors voted unanimously at its June 2020 board meeting to select Patrick Brown as its new Director effective July 1st. Tammy said “Patrick has been such a successful Outreach Coordinator that we felt it was time to promote him to Director. This will strengthen opportunities for Patrick to grow MACAE’s partnerships while keeping MACAE focused on its strategic plan. I am thrilled to take on this new role with him by my side.  As most of you already know, he has an amazing work ethic, is proactive and thoughtful in his planning, and a caring listener.  He is so supportive of all members and their needs.”

In addition, newly elected and appointed officers of the Board include Karyn Goven (Southwest Solutions) as Vice President, Renae Gowen (Romulus Adult Education) as Professional Development Chair, Heather Robidoux (Michigan Works! Southeast) as Networking Chair, Maha Makki (Dearborn Adult and Community Education) as Region 6 Representative, Charlie Wynne (Plainwell Adult Education) as an At-Large Representative, Shelley Hanson (Swan Valley Adult, Alternative and Community Education) as At-Large Representative and Kelly Vella (Huron Valley Adult and Alternative Education) as At-Large Representative/Treasurer.

Continuing on the board are Oogie LaMar (Kent ISD Adult Education) as Advocacy Chair, Bill Henry (Consolidated Community Schools) as Region 1 Representative, Tina Williams (Iosco RESA Adult and Alternative Education) as Region 2 Representative, Brenda Baker (Fruitport Adult and Alternative Education) as Region 3 Representative, Stacie Zeien (Mt. Pleasant Community Education) as Region 4 Representative, Connie Cox (Milan Community Education) as Region 5 Representative.

Please welcome our new MACAE Leadership.
