Boards & Commissions (B & C)

Boards and commissions allow members of our community to partner with Frederick County to help shape the structure of our future by sharing expertise and advising the County Executive and Council. Boards and commissions address a wide range of relevant topics, from the environment to human services to county planning.

We encourage residents to consider attending the public meetings held if the topic is of interest. If you have expertise in a topic, please consider applying for membership on the board or commission. Frederick County would appreciate your perspective.

Currently, some of the boards and commissions meet in-person or virtually. To learn the meeting status, please email the Office of the County Executive at email me here or 301-600-1028. Videos of virtual live meetings and previously held virtual meetings may be viewed on the public portal.
