The Delmarva Advisory Council was formed in
1964 as a voluntary association by the governors of
Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia within the region
known as the Delmarva Peninsula. In 1984, Mary-
land joined her neighbor states in establishing the
Council by statute (Chapter 671, Acts of 1984).
To advance the economic and cultural welfare of
the people of the Delmarva Peninsula, the Council
advises, counsels, and assists government agencies and
private organizations concerned with developing the
resources and economy of the region. The Council
helps governments work together and resolve inter -
jurisdictional disputes in a public forum.
The Council is composed of five gubernatorial
appointees from each state, as well as county offi-
cials, designated municipal officials, and citizens.
Maryland financial support for the Council comes
from participating Maryland counties and from the
State through the budget for the Department of
Economic and Employment Development (Code
1957, Art. 32B, secs. 1-101 through 1-111).

The Education Commission of the States oper-
ates under the Compact for Education, which
Maryland ratified in 1966 (Chapter 128, Acts of
1966). The Commission links state and local execu-
tive, legislative, professional, educational and lay
leaders to a national network. The Commission
informs political and educational leaders of current
trends and ideas in education and provides a forum
for public education policy.
The Commission is a national clearinghouse for
information on educational problems and their so-
lutions. This information is available to state and
local governments, and lay and professional groups.
Maryland pays an annual state membership assess-
ment. The members of the Maryland Education
Council represent Maryland on the Commission.
