City of Rancho CordovaDavid M. Sander, Mayor of the City of Rancho Cordova, was selected to join National League of Cities (NLC) Board of Directors at the 2020 Virtual City Summit.  Sander was elected to a one-year term and will provide strategic direction and guidance for NLC’s federal advocacy, governance and membership activities.

As a member of the board, Sander will meet in March, June and November to guide NLC’s strategic direction. As a member of the Executive Committee, he will have weekly meetings with staff and other committee members about the operations of the organization.

“The National League of Cities board of directors serves a critical role in guiding our organization’s priorities and policies,” said National League of Cities (NLC) President Kathy Maness, councilmember of Lexington, South Carolina. “NLC’s board of directors is made up of a group of amazing leaders like David Sander, and I look forward to working with them during an important time for the nation’s cities.”

More than 1,000 mayors, council members and other delegates from nearly every state and the District of Columbia convened virtually for the City Summit. Local leaders are on the frontline of the nation’s most pressing challenges and pioneering innovative solutions that move our cities, towns, and villages forward.
