New Leaders Council Launches NLC4

NLC is at a pivotal point, continuing to grow the number of institutes held across the nation and each year bringing hundreds more in to the NLC community. In 2015, we expect to have approximately 700 new Fellows go through the NLC Institute.

To better support our growing national community, we are launching the New Leaders Council Community Action Initiative (NLC4), as well as beginning our search for a new NLC Programs Director and an NLC Deputy Development Director.

NLC4 is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating for the policy initiatives key to NLC’s community members. NLC4 will host a variety of issues based programs with the aim of educating, promoting, and networking promising leaders in the progressive community; conducting research and publicizing the results thereof; developing and advocating for programs, legislation, regulations, and other social action that will benefit the community.

NLC4 is still the initial stages of formation, and input from members of our community will be critical in the coming months. We approach this process with care and an eye for long-term sustainability, progressive values, and chapter involvement.

NLC4’s core program initially will be a series of Innovation Teams focused on the major challenges facing our generation. More innovation centers may be added to fully reflect the NLC community, but the initial centers include:

  • Agriculture
  • Economics & Fiscal Affairs
  • Education
  • Energy
  • Environment
  • Health Care
  • International & Foreign Policy
  • Justice Issues and Legal Policy
  • Labor
  • Urban Development

These innovations teams, which will typically convene online, will produce smart new ideas, share best practices, support NLC alumni candidates, and help NLC Institutes learn from their success. Additionally, NLC4 will focus on issues and not on funding candidates for office through large financial expenditures.

Alongside the exciting launch of NLC4, New Leaders Council is also accepting applications for the National Programs Director and National Deputy Development Director roles to work for the 501(c)(3) New Leaders Council. Read each job posting here.

If you have any questions regarding NLC4, please contact NLC’s Programs DirectorMatti Miranda. If you have any questions regarding the National Programs Director and National Deputy Development Director roles, please contact NLC’s Executive Director, Mark Riddle.

This is an exciting time for the millennial progressive generation.
