President's Council    

  President's Council

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

The Focus:

  • Keeping the doors of electronic media open for the spread of the Gospel
  • Opening new doors of opportunity to reach the world for Christ in our generation.
  • Securing our freedom to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ

The annual contributions to the President's Council help advance a three-fold strategy:

  • To advance the interests of Christian broadcasters and communicators in the legislative, legal, and regulatory forums of Washington, D.C.
  • To capitalize on emerging opportunities to advance the cause of Christ through all electronic media
  • To strengthen vital relationships with men and women in positions of influence and authority in our nation's capital

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. Our 2018 Summit will be held in Washington, D.C., September 24-26. Attendees will stay at the Trump International Hotel.

During the September 2017 Summit, Council Members had private meetings with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in the U.S Capitol and Chairman Ajit Pai at the Federal Communications Commission. In addition to a special preview tour of the Museum of the Bible, we also visited with Ralph Reed, Founder & Chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition; David Brody, the Chief Political Correspondent for CBN News; and U.S. Senator James Lankford (R-Okla.), who received NRB's 2017 Faith & Freedom Award.
