THE HONORABLE MIKE ROGERS JOINS CSPC BOARD OF TRUSTEES

 

Washington D.C. - The Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress (CSPC) is pleased to announce that the Honorable Mike Rogers has joined the CSPC Board of Trustees.

Rogers joins a distinguished board whose members include: Eli Broad (The Broad Foundation); Bradford Freeman (Freeman Spogli & Co.); David Gergen (Former Presidential Adviser & CNN Senior Political Analyst); Senator Mel Martinez (JPMorgan Chase & Co.); Mack McLarty (Former White House Chief of Staff); Tom Ridge (Former Secretary of Homeland Security & Former Governor of Pennsylvania); Pamela Scholl (Dr. Scholl Foundation); Steve Schwarzman (Blackstone Group); George Stephanopoulos (ABC News); and Togo West (Former Secretary of Veterans Affairs). A full list of the CSPC Board of Trustees can be found on our website.

“I am honored to join the distinguished board members of the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress” said Congressman Mike Rogers. “We need organizations like CSPC whose mission is to educate policy makers and the public with constructive dialogue. I look forward to working with them in an effort to find bipartisan solutions to the world's increasingly complex problems."

 “I am delighted to welcome Mike as our newest Trustee,” said Ambassador Tom Pickering, Chairman of the CSPC Board of Trustees. “His proven record as a bipartisan leader, public servant, and national security strategist provides unparalleled expertise on a wide range of important political and policy challenges.”

Rogers began his career in public service as an officer in the U.S. Army. He went on to become a Special Agent in the FBI's Chicago Field Office, where he worked to fight organized crime and political corruption. After serving in the Michigan State Senate, he was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000 and served as Chairman of the U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence from 2011 to 2015.

During his time on the Committee, Chairman Rogers worked with two Presidents, Intelligence Community leaders, and Congressional Leadership to fight terrorist networks, transnational crime, and foreign spies. Rogers spearheaded efforts to combat malicious cyber attacks from nation states like China, Russia, and Iran. To address U.S. cyber vulnerabilities, Rogers worked to foster cooperation between government and the private sector.  Rogers also helped create the highly successful counterterrorism program for Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Rogers continually ensured that the brave men and women of the U.S. Intelligence Community had the resources and authorities they need to keep the American people safe.

In addition to his work with CSPC, Rogers is a nationally-syndicated radio host with Westwood One radio, and a National Security contributor for CNN. A full bio of Rogers is available on our website.

“We are honored that Mike has joined our Board and his career exemplifies CSPC’s mission,” said CSPC President and CEO Max Angerholzer. “As a leader on many important issues, he has reached across the aisle and to the private sector to find much-needed policy solutions. “
