NLC Board Now Includes Five California Representatives

November 27, 2013
During the National League of Cities’ (NLC) 2013 Congress of Cities and Exposition earlier this month, NLC leaders and membership elected new officers for 2014 and revealed a three-year strategic plan.   
Eighteen new members were elected to the NLC board of directors. With the election of Los Angeles City Council Member Joe Busciano and Rancho Cordova City Council Member David Sander, the NLC board now has five members from California. Other California representatives include:
  • Karen Avilla, city treasurer, Carson
  • Michael Kasperzak, council member, Mountain View
  • Gregory Pettis, council member, Cathedral City
 Under the new three-year plan NLC will:
  • Proactively drive federal policy;
  • Promote innovation and provide proven strategies and valuable resources;
  • Raise the profile of city government as key leaders and partners in improving the quality of life for our nation;
  • Expand the capacity of city officials to serve as ethical, effective and engaged leaders; and
  • Transform our organization so that it is focused on top priorities, fully aligned, nimble, accountable and transparent.
For information on additional actions taken during this year’s meeting please the NLC business meeting report.
