Board of Directors


The OHIO PUBLIC EMPLOYER LABOR RELATIONS ASSOCIATION is an organization comprised of a cross section of public sector employers. OHPELRA is intended to serve public employers at all levels, including the state, cities, counties, townships, other agencies of local government, colleges, and universities, and public schools throughout the State of Ohio. Our members are mostly full-time employees who represent public employers in labor-relations and human-resources matters, including dealings with labor unions. We also have many members who are attorneys or private consultants serving public employers. OHPELRA thus includes a broad range of public employer representatives from the smallest to the largest jurisdictions who handle a wide range of issues in the labor relations and human resources areas.

OHPELRA is an affiliate chapter of the National Public Employer Labor Relations Association (NPELRA), and through that national network, forms a key professional link with other state PELRA chapters, such as those in California, Illinois, New York, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and several others. Your annual dues also includes membership in NPELRA at one low price! Through the state organization and our national contacts, OHPELRA members receive professional publications that are not available anywhere else.
