EXECUTIVE COMMISSIONS, COMMITTEES, TASK FORCES, & ADVISORY BOARDS


[photo, State House, Annapolis, Maryland] In Maryland, executive commissions, committees, task forces, and advisory boards are created or authorized by action of the Governor, the General Assembly, another constitutional officer, or the head of a principal executive department. Often, these boards are assigned a specific responsibility or area of inquiry.

Through special study boards, the Governor draws upon the expertise of private citizens and public servants to help solve problems of government. Many of these boards must complete their work by a prescribed date. Others are ongoing. They may receive staff or other administrative support from an executive department or agency. Interagency committees, councils, boards, and task forces often are formed to coordinate the work of government agencies in a particular field.
