The Michigan Excellence in Public Service Series is fortunate to have built relationships over

the years with the best and the brightest in their field.  These dedicated individuals are willing to 

spend time with you in order to help train and provide you with the skills necessary as you move 

forward on your journey.

This is the only training program in the state of Michigan for Republican women.  You won’t find 

another one like it.  We revise the program as the political scenery changes, and as the issues 

change.  MEPSS does its best to keep the program current with what is taking place now.

Presenters are beginning to confirm their participation and we are excited with the program that 

has been developed for the 2017 & 2018 series.

“As a 2013 Graduate of MEPSS, I was able to apply what I learned in this comprehensive 

training program to become a more effective public servant and leader. I engaged and survived 

repetitive practice and evaluation by skilled and confident people. With more practice my 

confidence grew and I’ve been able to apply this in other areas of my life. I have been able to 

utilize the wealth of information in the course material to enhance my skills both personally and 

professionally. I gained invaluable knowledge and insight in government, politics and community 

leadership. Most personally beneficial to me in taking this course was overcoming my fears and 

knowing that women are just as politically ambitious and motivated as men.  I now use my 

platform in office to encourage and support women to run for public office.”
