    Eileen Leuby

    The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) announced enhanced efforts to support its 70 local government members.  With Central Ohio experiencing significant growth in rural, suburban, and urban areas, MORPC hopes to better assist local governments of all sizes as they work and plan together to improve their residents’ quality of life in neighborhoods across the region.  Eileen Leuby has been named to lead membership services as MORPC’s new Membership Services Officer.

    “It’s vital that our region plan today for growth, and Central Ohio’s communities’ working together is critical for our success. MORPC assists them with strategies and planning for investments in infrastructure, services, and policies our region needs to ensure growth improves everything from transportation and development to the environment and housing. We’re excited to create a new leadership position in local government membership services to ensure MORPC can deliver more to our local communities. With her experience in the private sector and already a valued member of the MORPC team, Eileen’s expertise and enthusiasm is contagious. She’s a passionate advocate for local governments, collaboration, and innovation who is known to local governments throughout the region.”
    MORPC Executive Director William Murdock

    Leuby has been with MORPC for six years serving as membership coordinator responsible for developing and executing a member outreach strategy for the agency. During her tenure, she has been instrumental in doubling MORPC’s membership to 70 members and creating a local government internship program that has connected over 100 students to public service internships in just five years.  In her new role, Leuby will further develop services for local government officials and staff and develop additional programming for a range of topics from professional development to intergovernmental collaboration.

    Prior to MORPC, Leuby, a resident of the city of Gahanna, worked over 16 years in membership services as the Director of the New Albany Chamber of Commerce.  Leuby received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Bachelor of Art in Public Administration, master’s degree in Personnel Services & Counseling from Miami University, and a Certification in Organizational Management from the U.S. Chamber at the University of Notre Dame.
