The National Religious Broadcasters announced on the opening day of their annual show, Proclaim 16, that it will move its headquarters from suburban Northern Virginia to Washington’s Capitol Hill.
NRB President and CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson explained, “This action is both historic and timely. … For more than 70 years, NRB has faithfully represented its members’ public policy concerns in Washington, without having its entire operation based on Capitol Hill. … moving NRB’s headquarters to Capitol Hill will more effectively serve our members’ interests.”
He added, “Now, more than ever, our first freedoms — of religion, speech, and the press — must be defended vigorously before members of Congress, federal government regulatory agencies, and in the courts. … Our new headquarters on Capitol Hill will more effectively allow us to address our members’ concerns and work with policymakers on these critical issues.”
The expected move-in is in early May. The leased space is in a building located near Union Station, on the northwest side of Capitol Hill.
