Resident Participation on Governing Boards

Jurisdictions with laws
Author Last Post

I am aware of six jurisdictions having laws on Board participation by residents. California, New Jersey, Maryland, Oregon, Ohio, and the District of Columbia. In Oregon and Ohio, the resident is a non-voting member of the Board. California provides for both voting and non-voting membership. As noted in another forum, a bill is currently pending in Illinois to provide for voting membership on the Board.
