IFC Representatives

The Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee has representatives on several area boards and commissions. In some cases, our participation is written into the organization’s foundational documents. While many of these appointments reflect our Milwaukee roots, we are increasingly reaching out into adjacent counties with our programming.
