The Arc of Southern Maryland welcomes a New Director of Development

The Arc Southern Maryland has welcomed Renée Seigley as Director of Development. This role is vital to ensuring financial stability for The Arc Southern Maryland through business development and fundraising activities.

Renée brings 20 years of experience, including former roles as Vice President of sales and marketing for a leading residential developer and National Director of sales and marketing for one of the nation’s top home builders.

“We are excited and fortunate to bring Renée on board at The Arc,” says CEO, Terry Long. “We believe she will bring us to new heights, increasing communications and connecting us to the people that have a true and vested interest in The Arc, including the families and people we support.” Renée’s expertise includes developing and implementing successful on and off line marketing campaigns, managing marketing and operational budgets, and direct P&L responsibility. Renée has always been passionate about nonprofit interests. She has served as a board member and chaired several nonprofit committees, leading efforts to raise funds which supported the mission of those organizations.

Renée says she feels “privileged to have the opportunity to work with The Arc and serve its consumers” and she looks forward to “creating efficient and compelling opportunities for donors to support The Arc and making the experience of giving satisfying and rewarding.” Renée holds an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh and lives in North Beach, MD with her 5 year old daughter.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
