Board of Directors

The Erie Regional Airport Authority is a Pennsylvania Municipal Corporation established in 1951, under the Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Act No. 164, for the purpose of acquiring, holding, constructing, improving, maintaining and operating, owning, leasing and providing financing for the airport and all facilities necessary or incident thereto.

The Airport Authority's Board consists of nine members, five appointed by the City Council of Erie and four appointed by Erie County Council. The appointments are non-authoritative in nature. There is no continuing linkage between the appointing authority and the board member. The oversight responsibility of the appointing authority ends with the appointment. Board members cannot be removed without cause and Pennsylvania law provides an impeachment procedure to be utilized if there is reasonable cause for a board member's removal.
