President’s Council

The President’s Council is a distinguished and caring group of business and community leaders from a variety of fields within the Washington, D.C., area who meet to provide Msgr. John J. Enzler with support and insight in his role as president and CEO of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington.

The council consists of about 150 committed members who meet two or three times a year.  Members have no governance duties, but rather meet to participate in discussions about the agency’s activities and future course.  Meetings include updates from the senior leadership of Catholic Charities, which can include financial and program updates and strategic goals.  Each meeting includes a guest speaker, who shares his or her experience and insight.
