Louisville, KY –
The National League of Cities is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities, and acts as a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans. NLC’s Board meets throughout the year and leads the organization by shaping its policies and priorities, while also directing the advocacy, research and membership activities of NLC.
Councilman Kramer has served on the NLC Information Technology Communications (ITC) Committee since 2003. During his tenure on the committee he has served once as chair and twice as vice chair. As chair of the committee he coordinated and facilitated NLC’s first web based steering committee meeting, making it possible for any members not able to travel to participate online. Though this meeting took place in Louisville, the committee also connected online with two other steering committees to work on issues of shared interest.
“I am honored to be a member of the NLC Board of Directors and look forward to utilizing this position to bring innovative ideas and successful best practices back to serve the residents of Louisville Metro.” -Kevin Kramer (District 11)
