Who We Are

Chicago Rockford International Airport - Aerial Overview - Administraton

The Greater Rockford Airport Authority is one of the oldest airport authorities in the United States. Formed in 1946, the Authority has four jurisdictions who appoint a seven-member Board of Commissioners.

The Mayor of the City of Rockford appoints three members, the County Board Chairman of Winnebago County appoints two members, the Mayor of Loves Park appoints one member, and the Village President of Machesney Park appoints one member. Commissioners are appointed for a term of five years and can be reappointed. 2006 marked the 60th anniversary of the Greater Rockford Airport Authority and 2007 marked the 20th anniversary of our Main Terminal.

The Board of Commissioners is responsible for setting policies and ordinances governing the operations at RFD, which are carried out or enforced by a professional staff. The Authority meets on the second and fourth Thursday of every month.
