Public Policy Awareness

MEDA has adopted an effort to promote economic development as a valuable investment for Maryland, its counties, and its municipalities.


The primary mission of the committee will be to make MEDA members aware of public policy issues related to jobs and investment at the state and local levels.  The committee will also work with elected and appointed officials to increase their
understanding of economic development and the impact of public policy on creating and retaining jobs in Maryland.  Finally, the Committee will assist MEDA members with training to become more effective in engaging with elected and appointed officials.
