WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Katherine O. McCary, of Midlothian, Virginia, was appointed by President George W. Bush to serve as a member of the National Council on Disability (NCD) (http://www.ncd.gov/). The U.S. Senate confirmed Ms. McCary's nomination on October 2, 2008.

Ms. McCary is a Vice President of SunTrust Banks, Inc. and reports to the Chairman, President and CEO, SunTrust, Mid-Atlantic and has corporate responsibility for the Accessing Community Talent (ACT) Program, a disability program that seeks to increase the employment of people with disabilities throughout SunTrust's workforce and to increase awareness of marketing opportunities for customers with disabilities. She manages the Corporate Disability Resource Center which provides disability information internally to employees and managers. She acts as disability consultant to SunTrust's 17 Diversity Councils.

In her 18 years with SunTrust, her contributions to SunTrust's disability efforts have resulted in national recognition, including the SHRM HR Magazine 2000 Innovative Practice Award, the 2002 US Business Leadership Network (USBLN(r)) Exceptional Leadership Award and the US Department of Labor Secretary Elaine Chao's 2004 New Freedom Initiative Award.

Ms. McCary is responsible for SunTrust representation in the Business Leadership Network organization and serves as the Chair of the USBLN(r), a national organization representing 5,000 businesses that educates employers on the business imperative of disability. She is involved in many "disability business" organizations, and local Workforce Investment Boards. She is co-chair for SunTrust's National Disability Mentoring Day and is a nationally recognized speaker on disability.

NCD is an independent federal agency and is composed of 15 members appointed by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate. It provides advice to the President, Congress, and executive branch agencies to promote policies, programs, practices, and procedures that guarantee equal opportunity for all individuals with disabilities, regardless of the nature or severity of the disability and to empower individuals with disabilities to achieve economic self-sufficiency, independent living, and inclusion and integration into all aspects of society.
