“I am excited to work with Connie Logan as vice chair of the Detroit FEB,” Detroit FEB Chair Mike Polsinelli shared. “I have worked with Connie in our respective roles as state directors of SBA and HUD to promote our federal programs in the community and look forward to now working with her to promote the Detroit FEB’s programs to our federal customers.”

Logan was appointed to the vice chair position by her federal peers and will serve a one-year term through Sept. 30, 2021. In this position, she is responsible for presiding at FEB meetings in the absence of the chair and shall succeed him in case of vacancy.
