RTP Organizational Changes

Fellow supporters and volunteers:

As we turn the page on 2011 and enter into a new year, RTP is excited to announce some structural changes within the organization that we believe will bring fresh new ideas and a streamlined operational model for the group going forward. In 2012, we are reclassifying the President and Vice-President roles to Executive Director and Assistant Executive Director, respectively. A Chairman of the Board (of Directors) has been appointed, who will work closely with the executive director on RTP initiatives and to coordinate day-to-day operations.

I’d like to introduce your RTP management team:

Board of Directors


  • Joe Guarino (& Chairman of the Board)
  • Susan Lascolette
  • Corky Mann
  • Eric McGrane
  • Phil Scott
  • Jon Wakefield
  • Gilbert Wilkerson
  • Phil Rapp – Executive Director
  • Andreanna Anastasiou – Assistant Executive Director
  • Julie Serfass – Secretary

In addition to the volunteers above, RTP will continue to have a mix of targeted committees/working teams to execute our plans/goals for the year, and we will share the committee structure as we finalize our plans for 2012. I would also like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to our current committee chairman and members…it is only through your energy and initiative that RTP is successful.

It has been a pleasure serving you this past year as RTP president, observing as the organization matured and refined its mission. Passion for tea party principles across the commonwealth (and country) continues to grow, and I am excited as I look forward to the various opportunities that 2012 will present.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any suggestions/concerns you may have.

May 2012 bring us victories in the battleground of ideas as we work to further those tea party principles,

Eric McGrane
