The National Association of State Catholic Conference Directors elected Paul A. Long, president and CEO of the Michigan Catholic Conference.
“I am grateful for Paul’s selection to this important national position as the Church continues her diligent work to promote the common good and to uplift the dignity of all human persons,” said the Rev. Allen H. Vigneron, archbishop of Detroit and chairman of the Michigan Catholic Conference Board of Directors. “The election of Mr. Long by his peers is a natural result of his talents and abilities; at the same time, it is also a testament to the strength of our Catholic conference here in Michigan.”
The National Association of State Catholic Conference Directors is an association of the executive directors of state Catholic conferences and affiliate diocesan agencies.
Long has served as Michigan Catholic Conference’s president and CEO since November 2010.
