Council For National Policy Membership Directory 1988

The name, city/state and organization or occupation presented below is only a small piece of the information which was included in the listed biographies, which in some cases are smaller than the (with smaller pictures) the information in the 1984-1985 CNP Directory.  Some have since passed on, changed occupations and locations, moved on, while some are found listed in the other CNP directories, as they chose to remain members. In other words, the information is historical in nature.  Those whom I chose to list in my compiled members list spanning the years 1981, 1982,1984-2001, with documented biographies, are shown to have been involved in the CNP according to documented and published data, from the CNP's own annual membership/telephone directories, as well as other authors documented research. 

According to the CNP's own published information, those who become members must be nominated and receive a vote of approval from the Executive Committee. Therefore, if someone is listed it is presumed they would have passed through that process. When they are no longer found listed we can presume they are no longer members from that provable time frame, unless they make specific statements concerning when they actually began and discontinued attendance and membership. Some stayed a very short time, others were/have been members for many years. This information is provided for educational and research purposes.

In the CNP Directories for 1984-1985 and also 1996, it is stated that:  "The Council for National Policy is an educational foundation registered under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations to the CNP are tax-deductable as charitable contributions, less $10 per year for your subscription to Policy Counsel"  The CNP itself put up their own website October, 2002, with their Journal website, called Policy Counsel >

In fact, still in 2008, we see from their website, "The Council for National Policy ("CNP") is an educational foundation organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We do not lobby Congress, support candidates, or issue public policy statements on controversial issues. Our more than 450 members include many of our nation's leaders from the fields of government, business, the media, religion, and the professions.

Our members are united in their belief in a free enterprise system, a strong national defense, and support for traditional western values. They meet to share the best information available on national and world problems, know one another on a personal basis, and collaborate in achieving their shared goals."
