Board of Directors

OCRRA’s Board of Directors is made up of respected community leaders who have been appointed by various elected county and city officials. Representing the entire community, they’re always advocating for the environmental interests of their neighbors. Each member serves a three-year term and continues to hold office until his or her successor is appointed.

The Board and its committees convene on a regular schedule, which you can find on our meetings page. All meetings are open to the public at OCRRA’s Main Office. Contact OCRRA's Board Secretary for more information.
