On behalf of the MAMC and its membership, the Board would like to congratulate our fellow MAMC Board members Robert and Jennifer on their new professional opportunities.

Robert Crawford has been appointed to the Office of Supervisor of Fort Gratiot Township. Robert has served the Township since 1992, serving as a Trustee 1992-2002 and Clerk from 2002-2019. His work at the Township has not gone unnoticed; congratulations Supervisor Crawford!

Jennifer Venema has accepted the position of Risk Control Representative for Tokio Marine HCC, which is the administrator of the Michigan Township Participating Plan. Jennifer has served as the Caledonia Township Clerk since 2006. Fortunately, Jennifer will still have an opportunity to interact with those of you that utilize the Par Plan for your property, liability and casualty insurance as she will be the representative for the west side of Michigan. Congratulations Jennifer!

The MAMC wants to thank you both for your many years of service to your communities and to the Association. The considerable amount of time and leadership that you gave to this Board is invaluable; you and your contributions will be greatly missed.

We wish you much success in your new endeavor.
