MITA is pleased to welcome Mariam Robinson to our team as the new Outreach Coordinator. Mariam will be in charge of facilitating and coordinating member connections with legislators and she will also coordinate the MTT (Michigan Transportation Team), working to get them more active in their local communities and in the press. Additionally, Mariam will handle PAC retention, recruiting and reporting. She is the new contact for our members to use in getting connected to their legislators as soon as possible.
Before coming to MITA, Mariam worked for the Michigan Nurses Association as their Government Relations Associate. During her time with MNA she coordinated their PAC, their Congress on Public Policy and she helped to develop their Legislative Liaison program. In addition, Mariam staffed the nurses at the Capitol and would help them lobby in support of statewide nursing issues. Prior to that, Mariam worked for former Lt. Governor John Cherry as his scheduler, State Senator Glenn Anderson as his legislative assistant and the Michigan State Medical Society as their grassroots coordinator.
Mariam earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees from Michigan State University in May of 2007, one in International Relations and one in Journalism. She lives in East Lansing with her husband (Alan) and her dog, a shih tzu/maltese mix named Zoe.
