The Administrative Board

SECRETARIAT
The National Catholic Secretariat, which is the Executive Arm of the Bishops' Conference, was established in 1960 and was registered as a Corporate Body in 1962.

Mission Statement
The Secretariat is to implement the decisions and policies of the Bishops' Conference through its Departments and Commissions for the spiritual and human development of the people of God.

The Secretariat is headed by a Secretary-General, assisted by an Assistant Secretary-General and other Administrative and Accounting personnel.

The Secretary-General's Department co-ordinates the activities of the various departments to ensure that decisions and policies of the Bishops' Conference are effectively and efficiently carried out.

The Administrative Board is the Executive Organ of the Bishops' Conference. It meets twice in a year, i.e. February and August, to deal with matters which cannot wait for the Plenary Assembly.
