MACo’s 2021 leadership were installed virtually on December 18, with Caroline County Commissioner Wilbur Levengood taking the reins as President.
MACo’s Board of Directors is normally installed at the Inaugural Banquet at the organization’s Winter Conference. With the 2020 in-person conference being cancelled due to concerns around the coronavirus pandemic, MACo held their business meeting and Board installation virtually this year.
More than 50 elected officials and employees joined the meeting to approve the Association’s annual business reports, hear about opportunities for professional development and leadership growth in 2021, and receive a recorded message of well wishes from Governor Hogan.
In his message, Governor Hogan thanked outgoing MACo President, Baltimore City Council Vice President Sharon Green Middleton for “leading the Association admirably in 2020, encouraging information-sharing among members and non-partisan approaches to keeping Marylanders safe.”
Governor Hogan installed the 2021 MACo Board of Directors:
- Wilbur Levengood, Commissioner, Caroline County – President
