The CATCH Council consists of 20 members who meet quarterly and use their professional expertise, experience and contacts to assist in the execution of activities focusing on expansion, development and awareness of American Family Children's Hospital.

Many council members either lead or support various CATCH committees such as events, marketing and volunteer. Email Danielle at CATCH@supportuw.org if you are interested in becoming a council member or if you'd like to join one of these committees.
