Associates Council

The purpose of the Associates Council (AC) is to support the mission of The Father McKenna Center by engaging in activities that advance the mission of the Center, including raising awareness and funds, while developing the next generation of Board leaders.

The Associates Council is a group of dedicated young professionals from diverse backgrounds who are committed to advancing the Center’s mission by volunteering their time and talents.

The AC members work together to raise awareness and funds for the Center and create opportunities to make a positive impact on the operations and programs offered at the Center.

Members also engage other young professionals to volunteer in our community.
