​Allen DiMarco - Secretary

Allen J. Di Marco, of Allenwood, Lycoming County, was confirmed as a member of the Board of Commissioners on December 15th, 2021.

Di Marco was selected from District 5, which includes Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Sullivan, Tioga and Union counties.

Di Marco was originally from Elimsport and has been a hunter since 1959. He’s a member of the Grays Run Hunting and Fishing Club, has mentored three sons in the hunting and trapping traditions, and has been a Hunter Access Program cooperator since 1974.

Di Marco graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Business Education from Shippensburg College in 1969. He went on to earn a master’s degree in Student Personnel Management in 1972 from the Pennsylvania State University. Di Marco began his career in 1969 as a teacher in the Loyalsock Township School District. In 1989, he became assistant high school principal, and in 1994 the principal, retiring in 2009 with 40 years in public education.

As a commissioner, Di Marco says his various positions of leadership and his lifelong passion for hunting and trapping will enable him to represent the many varied interests of Commonwealth citizens in wildlife conservation. “As a current Hunter Access Program cooperator, on the board I would like to continue to foster positive relationships between the Game Commission and landowners,” he said. “I am particularly interested in habitat enhancement on private and public lands, and will advocate for additional youth hunting opportunities.”
