Regional Advisory Councils Prove Invaluable

Regional Advisory Councils (RAC) provide an invaluable service to their communities as advisers to Catholic Charities West Virginia (CCWVa) regional staff. Their advice, guidance and support from the voice of the
local community is an important component of the overall structure of CCWVa and crucial to furthering the agency’s mission. This local network may provide insight into the unique needs of the community, access to partner organizations and help with local fundraising and awareness.
Clarksburg resident, Bill Suttle, has served as Chair of CCWVa Central Regional Advisory Council since 2008. Bill, who is a parishioner at Immaculate Conception – Clarksburg concluded his chairmanship on August 21st, but continue to serve for one more year on the council. Alissa Wilmoth, Central Regional Director said, “we offer Bill a heartfelt thank you for his leadership and years of service to Catholic Charities and the region.”
Assuming the chairmanship on August 21st was Chris Sharps. He is a resident of Fairmont, parishioner of Immaculate Conception – Fairmont and a member of the RAC since 2013. Sharps also serves on CCWVa’s
statewide Board of Directors. Current members of the central RAC are: Carmen DeMasters, Morgantown;
