Membership in the Executive Order of the Ohio Commodores is only possible through appointment by Ohio’s Governor in recognition for outstanding contributions to the economic development of the State of Ohio. It is considered Ohio’s “most distinguished honor.”
The Association currently boasts a diverse and dedicated membership of over 200 men and women. 18 charter members of the original Commodores still belong to the Association, and many Ohio families have seen multiple generations achieve membership.
Members include government officials such as members of the Governor’s Cabinet; distinguished university professors and administrators; leaders of trade associations and economic development organizations; and senior executives of large, medium and small manufacturers from across Ohio in a wide variety of industries.
*To become a Lifetime Member you need to pay an equivalent of ten years of membership dues.
