PHILADELPHIA (February 4, 2011) - Citizens Financial Group, Inc. Chairman and CEO Ellen Alemany has been elected to a three-year term on the Board of Trustees of the National Constitution Center. The board is led by former President William J. Clinton.

The National Constitution Center is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization in Philadelphia dedicated to increasing public understanding of the U.S. Constitution and the ideas and values it represents. The Center serves as a museum, an education center and a forum for debate on constitutional issues. The museum dramatically tells the story of the Constitution from Revolutionary times to the present through more than 100 interactive, multimedia exhibits, film, photographs, text, sculpture and artifacts.
“I am proud to join the Board of Trustees of the National Constitution Center and to support the work of the center,” said Alemany. “Citizens Bank stands for good citizenship and there is no better place to provide civic education, to increase awareness and to promote our democracy than the National Constitution Center.”
