The Office for the Protection of Minors at CMSM is assisted in its task by a talented cadre of experts in the field who comprise the National Advisory Council (NAC). Similar to the National Review Board (NRB) of the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops (USCCB), the NAC is an advisory panel of nationally recognized experts who volunteer their time to advise CMSM on all matters related to the protection of minors for religious institutes of men in and throughout the United States.
