Rural Action has a network of over 600 members throughout Appalachian Ohio. The organization is governed by a Board from across southeast Ohio, with strong private sector involvement. The Board oversees a CEO who manages a staff of 22 full-time equivalent staff and 31 AmeriCorps members through the Corporation for National and Community Service. Rural Action members are involved as volunteers, participants, decision makers, and project designers. Our vital member base guides our sustainable development work in Appalachian Ohio through personal and civic action.
