Terry Neese Joins NCPA As Distinguished Fellow

The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) has made a key addition, naming Terry Neese as a Distinguished Fellow. Neese, co-founder and past president of Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), will spearhead the NCPA's examination of how public policies impact working families and small businesses.

"I am excited to have Terry on board," said NCPA President John C. Goodman. "She is highly regarded for her ability to translate economic sense into common sense."

"I have long respected the NCPA's pioneering work on a variety of issues," said Neese. "I look forward to looking at our nation's outdated laws and regulations and asking: why can't we do better? Our goal is simple: develop and promote policies that work for families who work."

Neese is also the president and co-founder of the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women, Inc., an international non-profit, education and training research organization. She co-founded and is the past president of WIPP and president/CEO of GrassRoots Impact, Inc. At WIPP, Terry represented the organization's more than half a million members on Capitol Hill and to the Administration. Neese was recognized in the September 2000 issue of Fortune magazine as one of the Power 30 – the most influential small businesspersons in Washington, D.C. Recently, Inc. magazine recognized Terry as one of four Power Brokers and Activists for small business inside the Beltway.

Terry founded Terry Neese Personnel Services in Oklahoma City and recently celebrated 30 successful years in business. Terry's firm has helped to find careers for more than 25,000 individuals and generated over $2.7 billion in payroll to her community.

Terry is often requested for interviews on Fox News, CNN, CNBC and other media outlets across the country.
