Mayor Craig Thurmond was elected to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2016 Board of Directors at the 2015 Congress of Cities & Exposition held in Nashville, Tenn. Thurmond, who will serve a two-year term, will play a key role in guiding the nation’s largest and most representative membership and advocacy organization for city officials. Over the next two years, Thurmond will participate in six Board of Directors meetings at NLC convenings in Washington and across the nation.

“I am honored to serve on NLC’s Board of Directors,” said Thurmond. “It is vitally important that Broken Arrow interests are represented on the national level, and I am confident our community will be served well through my appointment.”

“National League of Cities’ Board of Directors provides the critical leadership that enables our organization to strategically address the challenges facing our nation’s cities,” said National League of Cities (NLC) CEO and Executive Director Clarence E. Anthony. “As we look toward the future, the Board will play a central role in helping NLC better serve our members and will provide guidance as we advocate for cities before Congress and the administration.”

In his role on the Board, Thurmond will help guide NLC’s strategic direction and set the organization’s advocacy priorities and operational goals. Board members are selected by a 15-member nominating committee, and are confirmed by a vote by NLC’s membership.

A complete list of NLC’s 2016 Board of Directors may be found here.

Additionally, Thurmond is serving on the NLC Presidential Task Force and was appointed chair of the 2016 Community and Economic Development committee.

The National League of Cities (NLC) is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans.
