CHANDLER, Ariz. — Chandler City Councilmember Matt Orlando was elected to the National League of Cities (NLC) Board of Directors by NLC membership during the organization’s 2022 City Summit in Kansas City, Mo. Councilmember Orlando was elected to two-year term and will provide strategic direction and guidance for NLC’s federal advocacy, governance and membership activities.

NLC is the largest and most representative organization for cities, their elected leaders and municipal staff, and advocates for city priorities in Washington by building strong federal-local partnerships.

“After serving consecutive terms this past year as the Chair on the NLC’s Finance, Administration and Intergovernmental Relations (FAIR) federal advocacy committee, I’m thrilled to change roles and represent the City of Chandler on the NLC Board of Directors,” said Councilmember Orlando. “I will continue to advocate for our residents and guide effective policy decisions to benefit our region — leading to a better quality of life locally.”

As a member of the board, Councilmember Orlando will meet in March, June and November to guide NLC’s strategic direction. Board members are selected by a 15-member nominating committee and are confirmed by a vote from NLC’s membership at the organization’s annual business meeting.

More than 3,000 mayors, councilmembers and other delegates from nearly every state and the District of Columbia convened in Kansas City for City Summit. Local leaders are on the frontlines of the nation’s most pressing challenges and are working hard to pioneer innovative solutions that move our cities, towns, and villages forward.
