Governance Structure

The HCLHIC is an organization of up to sixty (60) volunteers consisting of individuals and organizations from Howard County, Maryland, who are representative of various community segments. Each organization, regardless of how many employees participate in the public aspect of the meeting, has one vote on the full HCLHIC.

In addition, each Work Group holds one vote, representing the interests of the Work Group, on the Full LHIC. The Work Group co-chairs are responsible for presenting any dissenting opinions among their Work Group members but, when voting, represent the majority opinion of the Work Group.
