RNC Director Of Operations
As the director of operations, media operations, production, and official proceedings, there's not much about convention events that doesn't fall under Miller's purview. Then again, there's not much about conventions that Miller hasn't seen before: 2008 marks his 12th straight convention. He participated in the first two as a journalist, and then helped on the next 10 as a Republican staff member. Miller spent the first part of July preparing to move into the Excel Center, which the party took possession of on July 21, but things were sufficiently under control that he took a July Fourth vacation up on the edge of Minnesota's Boundary Waters wilderness area. "I've been through it all many times before," he said. When he isn't working on a convention, Miller is enjoying retirement in Tennessee, where he hikes the Smoky Mountains and works on his golf game.
