Council of Board Chairs

The mission of the Council of Board Chairs is to assist individual affiliate board chairpersons in maximizing their effectiveness. Each affiliate board provides leadership and guidance to their local affiliate and strengthens the relationship of the National Urban League and the communities we serve.

The council is the preferred, value-added, resource and networking organization of choice for information, training and support to affiliates and their local board members. The council serves as the liaison between affiliates and the National Urban League trustees, and establishes the roles and responsibilities of each affiliate, including input in the development of the policies, programs and priorities of the National Urban League.
