Board of Directors

Catholic Purchasing Services is governed by a board of trustees, led by an Episcopal Liaison appointed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and comprised of both religious and lay members who are committed to our mission. They are supported by our remaining founding partners who represent five dioceses throughout the country.
