Forest Conservancy District Boards

​​Maryland's Open Meetings Act

Maryland's Open Meetings Act is a statute that requires many State and local public bodies to hold their meetings in public, to give the public adequate notice of those meetings, and to allow the public to inspect meetings minutes. The Act's goals are to increase the public's faith in government, ensure the accountability of government to the public, and enhance the public's ability to participate effectively in our democracy.

In accordance with Maryland's Open Meetings Act, Forest Conservancy District Boards meeting minutes are linked below as they become available and updated. For more information, contact the appropriate Executive Secretary.
