The Park Board is the legal governing authority through which the business of the District is conducted. Park Commissioners are elected by residents of the District to a four-year term without pay.
Once the Park Board meeting has adjourned, all board members return to their roles as citizens and taxpayers. It is only the Park Board, acting at a legally constituted meeting, which has the authority to establish or change policy, sign agreements or award contracts. The Park Board has appointed a professional executive director to manage the operation of the District on a daily basis.
The Schaumburg Park District Park Board meetings are the second Thursday of every month at 7:30PM at the Jerry Handlon Administration Building, 235 E. Beech Drive, Schaumburg.
