From among its membership, NRB has been building a select group of executives who wish to bolster the public policy work of the association through additional commitments of time, support, and financial resources.
Members of the NRB President’s Council understand the importance of NRB’s engagement in the legislative 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 the nation's capital, 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.
Michael Little, president & COO of The Christian Broadcasting Network, has said, “The President’s Council is a ‘must’ for all members of the NRB who see the need for involvement with the federal government, which is so engaged with what broadcasters do now and intend to do in the future.” Little is a member of the NRB President's Council and chairman of the NRB Board of Directors.
In addition to being welcomed to a special executives reception held during the annual NRB International Christian Media Convention, President’s Council members also receive an invitation to the annual NRB Capitol Hill Media Summit in Washington, D.C.
Last September, President’s Council members participated in 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, they also visited with U.S. Senator James Lankford (R-Okla.); David Brody, the chief political correspondent for CBN News; and Ralph Reed, founder & chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition.
This year’s Capitol Hill Media Summit will be held September 24-26.
