On an issue-specific basis, the Committee may request discussions to include elected officials and staff from member municipalities or other jurisdictions, as well as consultants, as deemed appropriate.

Meetings will be chaired by an elected City representative when the meetings are held at an MD location, and chaired by an elected MD representative when held at a City location. Co-chairs should be appointed by the Committee at the first Committee meeting after each municipality holds their respective organizational meetings.
