RC&D'S Board of Directors

Southern Maryland RC&D is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors composed entirely of citizens from the communities we serve. This Board is the driving force behind all of the Council’s good work. There are a wide variety of skills and professions represented. We have educators, farmers, conservation professionals, and business managers. 

We are especially proud of our student representatives. Since 1997 we have had 17 students serve on our Board of Directors. Southern Maryland RC&D’s students are full Board Members with voting privileges. Student involvement in this Council is a profound investment in Maryland’s future as this Board mentors tomorrow’s conservation and development professionals. In fact, this Council has inspired many young people to pursue careers in conservation and community development.

The Board of Directors is composed of Sponsor Appointed and Board Appointed members. Sponsoring organizations in Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s counties include the Forest Conservancy District Boards, Soil Conservation Districts, County Commissioners/County Executive, and Tri-County Council for Southern Maryland. There are currently 17 Sponsor Appointed positions and five Board Appointed positions. All Board Members are volunteers - they receive no compensation for their considerable involvement with Southern Maryland RC&D.
