The Howard County Economic Development Authority reports to a private-sector-led Board of Directors. The Board has fiduciary oversight and is responsible for strategic direction of the HCEDA. The Board meets monthly to review HCEDA financials and progress. Meetings are held the third Thursday of every month at the Maryland Center for Entrepreneurship.

We are fortunate to have a strong Board of Directors who support the mission of the HCEDA. The Board also acts as strong advocates for the continued growth of Howard County’s business community. Committee members are also responsible for chairing several committees that focus on key areas of interest:

  • Incentives Committee
  • Legislative Committee
  • Finance Commitee
  • Committee for Business and Economic Diversity
