The Arc Central Chesapeake Region (The Arc) congratulates Catie Comer, Vice President of Advancement, on her acceptance to the Shore Leadership Class of 2022. Over the course of the year, Catie will complete the hands-on professional development program dedicated to building a better Maryland by harnessing the strength of local business and community leaders on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
The Arc’s services extend to nine counties on the Eastern Shore, and Catie is eager to make connections, inspire conversations, and increase awareness of how issues impact people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across the region. “There is so much more we can be doing as a community to help people with disabilities live the lives they choose for themselves,” said Catie. “I am excited to work with my classmates to create more opportunities to connect people with disabilities to the community.”
Under Catie’s leadership, The Arc has seen incredible growth, increasing annual giving by more than 180% and increasing brand awareness across the region. With Catie’s support, The Arc is poised to continue setting fundraising records, and successfully launch a large capital campaign. “I love working with our donors, connecting them to the work they make possible every day. I am excited to connect with fellow leaders who are ready to do more for the community.”
As The Arc continues to expand and support more people on the Eastern Shore, building strong connections with like-minded change-makers is a key step.
The Arc congratulates Catie on this recognition of her leadership and success in her career, along with all other members of the Shore Leadership Class of 2022.
