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.
