Join the NRB President's Council!

NRB Presidents CouncilFrom among its membership, NRB is building up a select group of strategic partners who wish to commit to the work of the association through additional commitments of time, support, and financial resources.

Members of the NRB President's Council understand the singular importance of NRB’s engagement in the legislative, legal, and regulatory processes centered in Washington, DC, 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, DC, 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.

Members of the President’s Council also make up a special advisory board for the association and are members of NRB’s Guardian Group, which provides certain legal benefits, including information and education to participating NRB members.

“WLMB-TV 40 Toledo supports the President’s Council because we believe the NRB is best positioned to preserve and expand Christian broadcasting not only in the United States, but literally around the globe," remarked Jamey Schmitz, President & CEO of WLMB-TV 40 Toledo, a member of the NRB President's Council, and a member of the NRB Board of Directors.

"Our investment is a well placed strategic investment in the building of the Kingdom of God, and without question, the successes of the NRB for Christian broadcasters, for Christian communicators, has been monumental," he added.  "If you are a Christian broadcaster, I can think of no wiser place to invest in the preservation and expansion of your religious freedoms than to become a Member of the NRB President’s Council.”
