The Arc Baltimore Elects New Officers, Board Members

Neil A. MacDonald, Vice President Operations and Chief Plant Officer at MedStar Union Memorial and MedStar Good Samaritan Hospitals, has been elected President of the Board of Directors at The Arc Baltimore.

MacDonald was elected at The Arc Baltimore’s 2015 Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony. He succeeds Carla N. Murphy, Esq., a Partner at Duane Morris, LLP. Ms. Murphy will continue to serve on the Board as Immediate Past President.

Other officers elected to The Arc Baltimore Board of Directors are: Joseph P. Ward, Esq., a Principal at Miles & Stockbridge, who was named Vice President and formerly served as Secretary; Danielle Ford, Director of Learning at Alban CAT, who was elected Secretary; and Thomas Sand, a Partner at Ernst & Young, who was reelected Treasurer.

In addition to the election of officers, two new members were named to The Arc Baltimore Board: Self-Advocate Seth Burdine, who currently works for The Arc Baltimore, conducting satisfaction surveys of program participants and as part-time receptionist for The Arc’s Woodlawn Center; and Jill M. Vocci, O.D., a pediatric and adult optometrist at Dankner Fiergang Eye Associates.

“Each of these individuals brings tremendous experience and skills to our already dynamic Board of Directors,” says The Arc Baltimore’s Executive Director, Stephen H. Morgan. “The coming year will present new opportunities and challenges, but I am very confident that with the leadership of this Board we are up to the task.”

Celebrating a tradition of volunteer and staff commitment, The Arc Baltimore’s 2015 Annual Meeting provided an opportunity to honor those businesses, individuals with developmental disabilities, family members, staff, and supporters whose work has been instrumental to The Arc’s success.
