Board of Trustees

During the program year, I came to realize a large number of not for profit organizations to serve the under served of the community. Going forward I have held a higher level of respect for those organizations.

Our educational seminars prepare our community to face current issues.

Leadership Medina County is prevalent in so many organizations as leaders, board members, and volunteers.

The over 1,000 Leadership Medina County alumni represent every profession and geographic area. Those who have gone through Leadership Medina County programs take a new perspective back to their daily lives, hopefully one that is more aware of the issues facing the community.

Leadership Medina County is governed by a Board of Trustees appointed by the Board of Trustees. Board members may serve up to two three-year terms. Our board currently meets once a quarter. For more information please contact us at
