In that position he also led the dramatic expansion of TROY's online offerings before resigning in 2007 to return to full time teaching before finally retiring July 1st, 2020.

His previous professional positions also include: Supervising personal security for two Secretaries of Defense, personnel management at Federal Departmental Level, investigative operations and training policy positions, and serving as a training consultant and training manual developer for public service organizations in New York City, New York State and New Jersey.

Dr. Meine held certification as a Government Financial Manager prior to retirement, served on the Executive Committee of the American Society for Public Administration, Section on Ethics and Integrity in Government (SEIGov) and is the past President of the Florida Advisory Council on Military Education. He is also a former Executive Committee member and Treasurer of the National Association of Institutions for Military Education Services.

His academic service includes serving as an editorial board member and manuscript reviewer for ASPA's Public Integrity Journal where he also served as Guest Editor for Public Integrity’s 2017 Symposium Edition on Military Ethics.
