New Executive Director At Rehabilitation Through Photography

RTP, Rehabilitation Through Photography announces the hiring of a new executive director, Maureen McNeil. Maureen comes to this new position with a strong background in the arts and culture, and most importantly, over 10 years experience in Non-profit management. She has a proven track record of working with board members. She has served as a spokesperson for organizations on a national and international broadcast media basis. Maureen is recognized as a true leader in the field of arts and culture.

For Maureen, RTP is a great fit. She believes that visual and verbal storytelling can help solve the problems of the world. As a published author of poetry and short stories, she has two books currently with literary agents, Dear Anne Frank: Writing Diaries Behind Bars, co-authored with Cynthia L. Cooper, and The Red Diary, a work of fiction about the last seven months of Marilyn Monroe’s life.

Jackie Augustine, President of the RTP Board of Directors stated that “We are very excited about the great progress that RTP is making in so many areas. We have created many new programs in the past year, most recently at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Fort Hamilton. Maureen will help us focus on expanding our efforts to create more programs, develop new events, build brand extensions, develop membership packages and increase donation and grants.

Maureen McNeil, the new Executive Director of Rehabilitation Through Photography stated, “The old adage “A picture is worth a thousand words,” proves true everyday at RTP. Teaching children and adults to express their ideas visually builds upon their strengths rather than their disabilities, and connects participants to their communities. RTP’s innovative programming is the kind smart donors want to fund. I’m inspired by its 70-year history, the professional photographers who teach its programs, volunteers and donors and the continued support of the photo industry.

Please visit us at the Photo Plus Expo at the Jacob Javits Center on October 25-27, 2012 @ Booth #359, meet Maureen McNeil and Members of the Board of Directors and “help transform lives through the power of photography”.
