OBID Board of Directors

We are a dedicated team of business district visionaries and advocates who are leading the exciting rise of Oakland -Pittsburgh’s largest university and hospital district. Since 1999, the Oakland Business Improvement District has been the public/ private partnership that provides enhanced beautification services, marketing events and promotion, public art and streetscape improvements and business development on behalf of over 250 member business and property owners. The OBID is supported, in part, by these member owners including Carlow University, UPMC, Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh.

The OBID By-Laws ensure that all stakeholders of the OBID are equally represented on the Board, including owners of both large and small commercial properties, tenants (business owners), the educational and medical institutions, City of Pittsburgh government and neighborhood organizations. Board of Directors are elected by the OBID membership at large at the Board of Directors’ Annual Meeting. The OBID Board of Directors is served by various committees including: Executive, Finance, Governance, Marketing,  Resource Development and Innovation Oakland Committees (to name a few).
