Economic Development Advisory Board

The Baltimore County Economic Development Advisory Board’s (EDAB) mission is to:

  • Gather and provide input, as an advisory body to the County Executive’s administration, on topics such as economic and workforce development, tourism, arts and culture, and community redevelopment activities
  • Serve as a collaborative forum for partnerships between public and private elements of the local economy to be identified and developed


The Board shall meet at the request of the Chair as frequently as required to perform its duties but no more than four times a year.


Members of the EDAB are appointed by the County Executive and represent the private sector, educational institutions, labor, community and government organizations. Board members will serve either a one- or two-year term and may not serve more than two, full consecutive terms. Members, board officers and committee chairs may be asked to serve in their role for multiple terms. Apply for a vacancy online.
