ALPENA — Marisue Moreau has announced her retirement from Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium. Her last day will be May 31.

Moreau has been with Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium for the past 30 years, committed to workforce development and delivering accessible and effective employment and training resources to her community and the eight-county region of northeast lower Michigan.

Moreau started with Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium (NEMC) in 1994 as Fiscal Officer. In 2012, she transitioned to NEMC Director. She has a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Ferris State University and is actively involved in her local Chamber of Commerce and church. She has also served on the Governor’s Talent Investment Board, as a Member of Northeast Michigan Council of Government (NEMCOG) board, Thunder Bay Transportation Authority (TBTA) board, MEDC-Collaborative Development Council (CDC), Region 3 Offender Success Steering Team/Advisory Council, Region 3 Regional Prosperity Initiative, Otsego County College Access Network (OCCAN), Michigan Works! Association Legislative Committee, Michigan Works! Association Finance Committee, and Michigan Works! Association Board of Directors.

Moreau and her husband Michael have lived in Onaway for over 20 years, raising two sons (Evan and Kyle). After years of work trips to Washington, D.C., Lansing, and other meetings across the state, she is looking forward to traveling solely for pleasure in the years to come. While she is sad to say goodbye to her work family and all she has built at NEMC, she is proud of how far the organization has come and hopeful for NEMC’s future.

Moreau will be passing the torch to the new NEMC Director Jessica Topp, who will assume the position on June 1. Topp has been with Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium for seven years, working as field staff and management prior to this role. She has her MBA and Business Solutions Professional Certification.
