STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (August 11, 2021) — Mission Critical Partners (MCP) announced that Joseph Wheeler, the firm’s vice president of justice, management, and technology services, recently was elected as vice chair of the IJIS Institute’s board of directors. The IJIS Institute is a nonprofit alliance that works to expand information use in the public sector.
