Open Meetings and Attendance Policy - 61.20
College Procedure Number/Title:
Howard Community College and the Board of Trustees of Howard Community College comply with the provisions of the Maryland Open Meetings Act contained in Title 10, Subtitle 5, of the State Government Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland. The Open Meetings Act strikes a balance between the need for openness in the conduct of public business and the need of public bodies to keep certain types of information confidential.
The Act does not afford the public any right to participate in meetings; however, it assures the public the right to observe the board’s processes and decision making at open meetings.
