Will serve as regional director
Cedric L. Hicks, Sr, District 3 Councilmember for the city of Carson, has been elected as a 2024 Regional Director of the National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials (NBC-LEO), a constituency group of the National League of Cities (NLC).
NBC-LEO serves as a forum for communication and networking among African-American municipal officials and their colleagues to share ideas and develop leadership experience. Hicks was elected in November at NLC’s 2023 City Summit conference in Atlanta, Ga. Hicks will serve as the NBC-LEO Regional Director for Region 20 which covers the State of California. He will work to boost membership of African-American local leaders in that region and welcome them into the caucus.
“It is with pride and admiration that I extend congratulations to Cedric L. Hicks Sr. on behalf of the city council, and the residents of Carson on his election as the 2024 Regional Leader of NBC-LEO,” said Carson Mayor Lula Davis-Holmes. “The City of Carson is proud to have Councilmember Hicks be a part of an organization dedicated to creating a world where everyone has an equal voice in public policy. We look forward to our community being enhanced as a result of this distinction.”
Established in 1971, the National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials provides a platform for municipal leaders to connect, share best practices, and advocate for the needs of their communities. The group also contributes to NLC’s leadership development, policy formulation, advocacy, and program activities.
