Board of Directors

The ADM Board of Directors is comprised of 14 Summit County resident volunteers who provide leadership in policy formation and fund allocation.

Our board members serve as representatives of the Summit County community through appointments made by two appointing authorities. The Summit County Executive appoints eight of the Board positions. The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS), a consolidation of the former Department of Mental Health (ODMH) and Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services (ODADAS), appoints six positions. Members are appointed for a four year term, and may be reappointed for a second four year term.
