Meet our Board of Directors

The Summit County Land Bank is governed by a seven-member board of directors. By statute, and in accordance with our Code of Regulations, our board is comprised of the County Fiscal Officer, the County Executive, and a representative of County Council. Our board also consists of a representative of the largest municipality, the City of Akron, and a representative of a township with a population over 10,000, recommended by the Summit County Township Trustees Association. Finally, our board has two additional directors, of which one must have real estate experience.
