CBNB's October Virtual Monthly Meeting

"Maryland Legislative Preview: A glimpse at the upcoming 2021 Maryland Legislative Session with a focus on issues important to Catholics and Catholic business owners." 

Join us for this must-see session, as Executive Director Jenny Kraska of the Maryland Catholic Conference shares a “sneak peek” at 2021 Maryland legislative priorities and their potential impact on your life and business. You will also learn about the process for bringing issues of concern to your business before the legislature in Annapolis. 

We will begin this month’s meeting with 30 minutes of networking from 7:30 – 8:00 a.m.  Breakout sessions will follow Jenny’s presentation, along with an opportunity to have your questions answered. Looking forward to seeing you!


Jenny grew up in Prior Lake, Minn., a suburb of Minneapolis.  She attended both the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn., and the Angelicum (Rome, Italy) where she graduated with a double major in Catholic studies and theology with a minor in Latin.  She continued her graduate studies at St. Thomas where she earned her doctor of law degree (J.D.) and a master's degree (M.A.) in Catholic studies.

Kraska worked as a research attorney for Thompson West Publishing before moving to Colorado to join the Colorado Catholic Conference and become the Executive Director of the Colorado Catholic Conference. In October of 2019 Jenny was named Executive Director of the Maryland Catholic Conference. A Catholic Conference is the state level, public policy agency of the Church jointly operated by the Catholic dioceses in the state.

Jenny has served as the President of the National Association of State Catholic Conference Directors, a Consulter to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Catholic Education, a member of the Federal Assistance Advisory Commission, a board member of Catholic Rural Life and as a Consulter to the Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
