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.
Moreover, NRB assists members of the President’s Council in scheduling their own meetings with Members of Congress, FCC representatives, or other government officials. In addition, President’s Council members have the opportunity to be kept up to speed on happenings in Washington via conference calls, as well as a special reception only for council members and select high-level invited guests at NRB’s annual convention. President’s Council members also receive an invitation to the annual NRB Capitol Hill Media Summit in Washington.
During previous summits, President’s Council members have been treated to briefings at the White House, the Speakers Office in the House, and the Senate Majority Leader’s office, as well as public NRB-organized debates at the National Press Club, a tour of the Supreme Court, a tour of FOX studios and meeting with studio anchors, presentations from newspaper columnists, visits to members offices and to the Capitol Hill Club to hear from other senators and House members, and also the chance to meet with the FCC’s chairman and commissioners and to receive attorney briefings on breaking legal and policy issues from an insider’s view not regularly reported.
This year’s Capitol Hill Media Summit will be held September 9-11.
