Connect Faith’s 2018 Memory Makers

Peter S. Maher

Sales Director, Religious and Faith Based Meetings, RCS Event Production

Herndon, Virginia

What I do: In my former job as COO of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians, I was responsible for all the daily operations of NPM, a 5,000-plus-member nonprofit association. This included overall responsibility for all our meetings and events including site selection, vendor contracts, managing the local committee and more. At RCS, my job is to work with faith-based planners to realize their meeting dreams through quality, reasonably priced full-service event production.

Events I am proud of helping produce: I had the honor of being the production director for two papal masses: Pope Benedict at Nationals Park and Pope Francis at The Catholic University of America.

What I’m working on: I am now working with RCS Event Production out of Cleveland, Ohio. I am heading up RCS’ new religious and faith-based meetings division. RCS has a reputation for superior event production, and I have seen firsthand how they have been able to help NPM do so much while spending less than comparable companies. We have put together a strong team of technicians, all of whom “get” church.
