About Roslyn Brock

Roslyn M. Brock is chairman of the national board of directors for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). She made history in February 2010 when she was unanimously elected as its 14th chairman—the youngest person and fourth woman to hold this position.

Brock is employed as vice president of advocacy and government relations for Bon Secours Health System, Inc., in Marriottsville, Maryland. Prior to working at Bon Secours, Brock worked ten years in health programs at the W. K. Kellogg Foundation in Battle Creek, Michigan.

Brock has been a servant leader with the NAACP for more than 27 years. She is a Diamond Life Member of the NAACP and joined the association as a freshman at Virginia Union University where she was elected president of the youth and college division from the Commonwealth of Virginia. One year later, she was elected as a youth board member from Region 7 representing the District of Columbia, Maryland, and the Commonwealth of Virginia. As vice chairman of the NAACP Board Health Committee, her advocacy for quality, accessible, and affordable healthcare for vulnerable and economically challenged communities resulted in the creation of a standing committee on health.
