About the Board

The 15-member Mid-County Citizens Advisory Board (MCCAB) serves as Montgomery County's bridge to the 220,000 residents and businesses spread throughout the 99 square miles of the Mid-County area of Montgomery County. The Board provides advice and recommendations to the County Executive on policy and budget issues, planning and goal setting procedures, and legislative matters; educates the community on governmental structures and services; and acts as a facilitator to foster solutions to community problems, needs, and issues. 

Members of MCCAB are selected by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Council to serve 3-year terms. Announcements about openings on the Board are made by the County Executive and published in regional and neighborhood newspapers.  Call at 240-777-8101 or send e-mail to midcounty.citizen@montgomerycountymd.gov for information about meetings.
