Governor Seeks County Representation on MD iMap Executive Committee

On March 13, Governor Martin O’Malley signed Executive Order 01.01.2012.04. The new order opens the MD iMap Executive Committee to non-state members for the first time. Governor O’Malley is now seeking ten Marylanders with knowledge and enthusiastic interest in geospatial data, technology, and policy. Further, members should have the demonstrated ability to represent a Maryland constituency active in geospatial matters and work on behalf of the state as a whole.

  • Duties and Level of Commitment: Appointed members will advise and help guide the MD iMap program. The Executive Committee intends to hold quarterly meetings in the Annapolis-Baltimore area. Meetings will not exceed one business day and usually will be a half day. Physical or remote meetings of subcommittees are also possible. These are volunteer positions. The state will not compensate appointed members for time or expenses.
  • Governmental and Non-Governmental Membership: Of the 10 seats, five are reserved for representatives of local/regional government or public utilities. These seats may be filled by elected or appointed officials or employees — one from each region:
    • Central (Baltimore City and Harford, Baltimore, Carroll, and Howard counties)
    • Eastern (the entire Eastern Shore, including Cecil County)
    • National Capital (Montgomery and Prince George’s counties)
