SCI Organizational News – October

New Western Region Program Manager

We are excited to announce that Marci Meredith has been selected to serve as the new Western Region Program Manager for the DDA/TCM program. Marci has worked in the developmental disabilities field for 28 years and has been with Service Coordination for 23 of those years. (Fun fact: Marci was hired for an expansion position in Carroll County (1996), bringing that office to a grand total of 4 SCs which allowed that office to get a second desktop computer; there are now 18 SCs in Carroll County, all with mobile equipment and the ability to work in the community…how far we have come as an organization!) Marci has served as a Carroll County supervisor for much of her tenure, with time also spent in several other leadership roles. She is a member of SCI’s DDA Case Management committee (and several CMC sub-committees) and the Web Committee; in addition, she has been a taskforce member in the development of several of SCI’s Strategic Plans (2007, 2009, 2016, 2019). She serves as a member of the Carroll County Community Service Council and Change Agents group. Marci will begin her new role on 9/29/2019.
