The National Policy Committee (NPC) was founded in 1935 by a group of men and women representing management, labor and the general public, who were interested in promoting discussions on the "due process of policy making which is centrally important to the democratic procedure."
The NPC organized meetings from 1935 to 1947, in various locations in the United States, in order to supply the public with information on issues of regional and national interest; to stimulate discussions of public interest in preparation for political decision making; to facilitate exchange of information; to encourage public participation in political decision making; to "ensure the translation of political thought into political action; and to work towards a national policy based on general interest rather than special interest."
