Commission

MORPC’s board of commissioners determines the strategic direction of the agency. Our local government members appoint elected officials and staff to serve as their representatives to the commission. All meetings are open to the public.

The number of representatives is based on the rules established in the governing documents: the Articles of Agreement and the Commission Bylaws. These same documents outline the policies, procedures, and rules of conduct including adherence to MORPC’s current Code of Ethics.

Membership offers important benefits to communities. For more information, contact Eileen Leuby at 614.233.4135.
