Robin Clark Eilenberg, Esq., a member of MACo’s staff since the summer of 2012, has accepted the newly created position of Research Director. In her new role, she will remain involved in policy advocacy for county issues, but will also take on leadership in MACo’s policy research, information services, and analytics supporting the association’s many efforts.
“A focus on research is going to serve MACo and our counties well, as we increasingly become a top resource for information and analysis on issues affecting county governments,” said Executive Director Michael Sanderson. “Robin is a great fit for this new and important role, and our member counties will benefit even more from her skills with this move.”
A graduate of the University of Maryland Law School, Robin has been MACo’s lead advocate on education and labor issues during her time with the association, and has done substantial research on a number of topics connected to MACo’s initiatives and longer term policy goals. She has also worked with several of MACo affiliate groups and chapter organizations, and has led MACo’s outreach with NACo and the state’s congressional delegation.
