Joint Operating Committee (JOC)

Establishment of the ACTI Authority

The Joint Board of Adams County Technical Institute (ACTI) is in the process of establishing the ACTI Authority in accordance with the Municipal Authorities Act.


ACTI is not an entity that can issue bonds or purchase real estate or build buildings.  The purpose of the ACTI Authority will be to collaborate with ACTI particpating districts as the body politic that owns the real estate and buildings that ACTI will occupy.  The Authority has limited powers under the Municipal Authorities Act.


A Notice of Public Hearing was advertised and the hearing was held on January 24, 2024.  There were no comments.  A recording of that hearing is available here.


Next steps:

  • At regularly scheduled Febuary school board meetings, participating districts will vote on a Resolution of the Joint Board of ACTI to organize Authority.
  • Documents will be submitted to the PA Department of State for approval in February/March.
  • First official meeting of the ACTI Authority should occur near the end of March.

Joint Operating Committee

Adams County Technical Institute (ACTI) is governed by a Joint Board – all school board members of all participating districts.



Through the Articles of Agreement, the Joint Board has authorized a Joint Operating Committee (JOC) to make most decisions concerning the operation of ACTI.  Specific financial decisions outlined in the Articles of Agreement have special approval procedures and must go before the Joint Board.



Each participating district appoints one regular and one alternate JOC member.  Current JOC members and alternates are:

  • Bermudian Springs SD – Daniel Chubb and Matt Nelson
  • Conewago Valley SD – Lindsay Krug and Meredith Miller
  • Fairfield Area SD – Jennifer Holz (Chairperson)
  • Gettysburg Area SD – Jeremy Davis and Ryan Morris
  • Littlestown Area SD – Duane Sullivan (Vice Chairperson and Treasurer) and Brian Lawyer
