Packers make rare change in Executive Board

The Green Bay Packers made a change in their Executive Committee for the first time in 11 years Tuesday with the addition of Larry Weyers, chairman, president and CEO of WPS Resources.<p>

Team President Bob Harlan announced Weyers' election to the board in place of Jim Temp late Tuesday after the team's quarterly meeting at Lambeau Field.

The Packers' Executive Committee, elected from the team's board of directors, directs corporate management, approves major capital expenditures, establishes broad policy and monitors management's performance in conducting the business and affairs of the corporation. Weyers, who turned 59 Tuesday, was originally elected to the Packers' board of directors in December 2002. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Doane College in Crete, Neb., a Master of Science degree in engineering from Columbia University in New York City and a Master of Business Administration degree from Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. and is a registered professional engineer.

Temp, who has reached the corporation's mandatory retirement age, is a former player who was drafted by the Packers in 1955 out of the University of Wisconsin. He played 43 games at defensive end from 1957-60 following military service.

Temp and fellow board member Terry Bogart will become directors emeritus at the Packers' Annual Meeting July 28.
