Kolczun was Chair of the American Bar Association, General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Section in 2004-2005, and recently was elected to the Board of Governors of the American Bar Association.  He has served on a number of boards throughout Northeast Ohio and is currently serving on the Board for the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland Foundation.

Torres-Hutlock is an LCCC graduate having earned an associate’s degree in 1988 and a former Board of Trustees member. She previously served on the board from 1987 to 1992.
