Councilwoman Lavonta Williams has been named to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2016 Board of Directors.
NLC Board of Directors are selected by a nominating committee. Williams was appointed last week at the annual Congress of Cities and Exposition in Nashville, Tenn. She was also appointed to the REAL Council, which looks at “Race, Equity, and Leadership."
“It's an honor to be nominated to represent and give voice for the state of Kansas and the more than 19,000 other cities and 218 million Americans,” Williams said. “This position helps build our cities and connects resources.” Newly elected board of directors serve a two-year term.
The NLC is dedicated to helping municipal leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans.
