Gyna M. Bivens Elected to the National League of Cities Board of Directors

Fort Worth, Texas – Gyna Bivens, Mayor Pro Tem of Fort Worth, Texas  was elected to the National League of Cities (NLC) Board of Directors by NLC’s membership at the organization’s 2023 City Summit in Atlanta, GA. Bivens was elected to a 1-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, municipal staff, and advocates for city priorities in Washington by building strong federal-local partnerships.

“To be among the four Texans elected to serve on NLC’s Board of Directors is an honor.  I’m delighted to be ‘at the table’ where strategies impacting cities like my hometown are crafted.  Whether it’s development  like you see in the Lakes of River Trails, or the revitalization of Stop Six, the workshops and trainings from NLC have benefitted my council district and the entire City of Fort Worth.”

As a member of the board, Bivens 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.

 “The National League of Cities Board of Directors plays an essential role in guiding our organization’s priorities and programming,” said National League of Cities (NLC) President David Sander, mayor-elect of Rancho Cordova, CA. “I look forward to working closely together with this remarkable group of leaders to elevate the voices and priorities of cities, towns, and villages across America over this next very important year.”

More than 3,000 mayors, councilmembers, and other delegates from nearly every state and the District of Columbia convened in Atlanta 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.
