The NRB President’s Council comprises visionary NRB Members who express their commitment to the work of the association through additional commitments of time, support, and financial resources. President’s Council members understand the importance of NRB’s engagement in the legislative, legal, and regulatory processes centered in Washington, D.C., recognizing that these efforts are crucial in the battle to keep the doors of electronic media open for the spread of the Gospel. Through participation in special events in Washington, D.C., President’s Council members serve as influential ambassadors for NRB as they interact with political leaders and others with positions of significant influence and authority in our nation’s capital.
NRB partners with like-minded legal firms that advocate legal policies that advance Christian broadcasting freedoms through Amicus Curiae ("friend of the court") briefs in pending litigation, and similar filings. This group of legal experts is available for referral to President's Council Members.
In short, President’s Council members are a select group of strategic partners whose generous support and dedicated efforts enable NRB to preserve and expand the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, both in the United States and around the world.
The NRB President's Council:
Serves as an advisory board for the association
Draws upon the breadth of experience from our membership
Lays a foundation for the future of Christian media.
Gives opinions and feedback on the direction of the association
Functions as a sounding board for future NRB initiatives
NRB Capitol Hill Media Summit
Members of the President’s Council are invited to attend the NRB Capitol Hill Media Summit in Washington, D.C., each fall. During this exciting three-day event, President’s Council members gain an insider’s perspective of our nation’s capital.
During the September 2018 summit, council members were provided a briefing at the White House featuring Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to the President, and Mercedes Schlapp, White House Director of Strategic Communications, as well as other White House officials. Council members enjoyed a visit to the U.S. Capitol to present Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) with NRB’s 2018 Faith & Freedom Award, as well as a tour of FOX News studio where they spoke with Anchor and Chief Legal Correspondent Shannon Bream. Other highlights were opportunities to engage House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), FCC Commissioner Michael O’Reilly, OIRA Administrator Neomi Rao, Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton, and Alliance Defending Freedom’s Jeremy Tedesco.
