Maryland County Officials Diversity Caucus
Overview

The Maryland County Officials Diversity Caucus (Diversity Caucus) provides an organizational structure for county elected officials of minority descent and gender to empower, represent, and respond to issues affecting the most vulnerable communities and constituencies; to promote legislation and policies beneficial to the people they represent; and to serve as a central point for information and participation within the Maryland Association of Counties.

The mission of the Diversity Caucus is to foster current and future leaders from within the community of elected officials of minority descent and in Maryland county government, and to provide resources and support for Diversity Caucus members and those who share its goals.

The Diversity Caucus meets two times per year and at the MACo Summer and Winter conferences.
