WASHINGTON, May 2, 2014 / The National Council on Disability (NCD) – an independent federal agency that recommends disability policy to the Administration, Congress and other federal agencies – welcomed President Barack Obama's announcement that three new members have been appointed to the agency. In addition, Councilmember Janice Lehrer-Stein was reappointed for a second term. New members are expected to begin work with NCD immediately.
NCD's new members Benro T. Ogunyipe, Dr. Katherine D. Seelman and Royal P.

Kuniholm, USMC (Retired), Lynnae M. Ruttledge and Alice Wong all previously appointed by the President, to round out NCD's roster. Biographies for the new Council members are at the end of this release.
"The Council extends a warm welcome to our outstanding incoming members and to Janice Lehrer-Stein who returns for a second term," proclaimed NCD Chairperson Jeff Rosen. "The depth and breadth of experience and knowledge they will bring to the Council's existing work will prove invaluable in our collective quest to ensure the human, civil, and legal rights of Americans with disabilities across the nation."
NCD also expresses its collective gratitude to the outgoing members Pamela Young-Holmes, Matan Koch and Dr. Fernando M. Torres-Gil for their terrific work on behalf of Americans with disabilities and for their commitment to public service.
