In 2003 Brian led the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' National Advisory Council as its chairman. He was elected to the National Board of Trustees of Catholic Charities USA in 2004 and served as its Secretary until 2011. In addition, Brian chaired the Catholic Charities USA Task Force on the Code of Ethics, its Committee on Catholic Identity and the Editorial Board of Catholic Charities USA 100th Anniversary 2010.

"I am honored and humbled by this appointment to work for Catholic Charities USA, a national organization that I have been involved with for over 27 years," said Corbin. "During my time in the Diocese of Youngstown I have applied the principles of Catholic social doctrine to help alleviate poverty by providing quality social services, advocating with low income families, and convening the Church and others of good will to do the same. In this capacity as the Senior Vice President of Social Policy for Catholic Charities USA, I plan to continue the amazing work done by others before me, with the entire national staff and network of Catholic Charities agencies throughout the U.S., promoting and applying the Church's teachings to work to reduce poverty in our land, following the lead of Pope Francis, who calls us to give a 'voice to the cry of the poor.'
