Joint Council

The Michigan Association Joint Council is comprised of local chapter advisors within each region. The major responsibility of the council includes advising the state director and state executive council on the programs, procedures, and activities for the state association.

The council is comprised of two main committees. The regional advisor committee is responsible for coordinating regional events (i.e., fall conference and regional leadership conference). The advisory committee serves as the main liaison between the Michigan Association, joint council, and chapter advisors.

The CEAC representative is a primary member of the joint council. This individual, who is a local chapter advisor, will serve on the National Classroom Educators Advisory Council. This person is also responsible for the administration of the Workplace Skills Assessment Program during the state leadership conference. This person serves for a three-year term and can serve a maximum of two consecutive terms. Our 2012-2015 CEAC Representative is Patrick Schultz.

The Executive Committee consists of:
Patrick Schultz, Bay-Arenac Career Center
Kelly Williams, DeWitt High School
Sue Lorey, Mona Shores High School (Retired)
Maurice S. Henderson, Business Professionals of America
