OMH Board of Trustees

There are fifteen trustees, each appointed for a three-year term, that serve on The Home’s Board of Trustees. Six members are representatives of The Ohio Grand Lodge, three members from Grand Commandery, three members from Grand Chapter, one member from Grand Council and two members represent the Scottish Rite.

Each presiding officer of The Grand Body is responsible to either reappoint an existing board member or appoint a new board member at the end of the board member’s term. Every year five board members are up for reappointment. Each Grand Master, Grand Commander and Grand High Priest will have at least one board appointment during their time in office.

The existing board members assist the fraternal presiding officers on board profiles to help them search and select board members with the specific expertise and skills to meet the organizational needs.

Each subsidiary board is composed of seven members, of which up to two are from the OMH (parent) board. Two-thirds of the parent board members also serve on one of the subsidiary boards and all the trustees serve on various committees. There is a mandatory retirement age of 70 for board members.

Through its committee structure, the parent board members decide key governance issues dealing with finance, long-range planning and policy, nominating, pension board and executive concerns.
