The Nominations Committee conducted a series of interviews in the late summer to fill two vacancies caused by the resignations of Peter Gilbert and Stephanie Lowet. Replacing Peter and Stephanie was daunting because they contributed mightily to the stewardship of the club and they will be missed. Maria Ferguson and Glenn Reynolds are on the ballot as new Board candidates. The Nominations Committee feels that their professional careers and life experiences will bring great value to the CCRA Board. Three current Board members round out the ballot of five candidates for the 2019-2021 term: Neal Lieberman, Bill Sandmeyer and Pat Xeller have been diligent, responsible Board members and have provided expertise, wisdom and dedication to CCRA throughout their tenure.
Maria is a longtime member and avid user/fan of CCRA. Each member of her family has found a niche at the club. Maria’s previous board experience includes serving on the Facilities Committee at the Edmund Burke School. She is currently a board member for HIPPY, a nonprofit that serves parents and preschool youth. She is the Executive Director of an education policy center at George Washington University and she writes a monthly column for Kappan, a national magazine for the education community.
A corporate entrepreneur, Neal is currently a principal at Washington, DC-based executive recruiting firm Krauthamer & Associates. In the past Neal has advised, consulted and invested in a number of technology startups. In 2012, Neal sold Gifford’s Ice Cream & Candy, Co., a regional ice cream manufacturer that he grew from one ice cream store in 2004 into a retail/wholesale regional brand with multiple stores. Neal has been a CCRA Board member for 3 years and a member of CCRA for 15 years.
Glenn and his family have been CCRA members since shortly after moving into the Martins Addition section of Chevy Chase in 2001. He is a regular fixture at the pool, along with his three sons. In addition to being a committed lap swimmer, Glenn has become an active participant in the tennis program. His son Dylan is in his third year on the swim team. Glenn works in the telecommunications industry, currently heading up the regulatory policy shop for Telcordia. In his past he managed a pool in Annandale.
Bill Sandmeyer and his family have enjoyed membership at CCRA for many years. He and his family have been active at the pool, with the swim team, and in the tennis programs. Bill is currently the Director of the U.S. House of Representatives Members' Wellness Center, a health and fitness center that serves Congress. His service with the CCRA Board of Directors began in 2010. He has contributed in various areas, including Community Affairs, Operations, Nominations, and as an officer on the Executive Committee.
Pat and her family have been members of CCRA for over 30 years. She has served on the CCRA Board since 2016. In the past Pat practiced law with several national nonprofit organizations, was on the Board of the DC Preservation League and was a stay-at-home mom, active in the PTA. Upon her return to full-time work, Pat headed the annual fund at an independent school and served in the MD Dept. of Economic Development. She currently works for a real estate investment trust near Baltimore.
