Penny Payea, Ogemaw County EDC Alliance Inc/Michigan Works Region 7B (West Branch, MI) – Region 5


I have a background in career development, supportive services and non-profits. I served as a Director of the Tawas Area Chamber of Commerce for two years before moving to Michigan Works to run the Business Resource Network/The Network. In January 2022, I took on the role of Director of Business Services and Economic Development for Ogemaw County EDC. I started working with CEDAM in 2018 while with the Chamber of Commerce, and I believe it to be a very integral part of economic development operations.
