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. Formed in 1999, the Oakland Business Improvement District (OBID) is the region’s second largest place management organization in Pittsburgh, representing a diverse group of decision makers including property and business owners, universities, hospitals, city government, community and cultural non-profits.

The OBID By-Laws ensure that all stakeholders of the OBID are equally represented on the Board, including owners of both large and small properties, tenants (business owners), the educational and medical institutions, City of Pittsburgh government and Oakland based community, civic or cultural organizations. The Board of Directors are elected by the OBID membership at large at the Board of Directors’ Annual Meeting. The OBID Board is served by various committees including, but not limited to, Executive, Finance, Governance, Marketing, Personnel, Resource Development, Marketing and Innovation Oakland.
