We are looking for an Executive Director committed to making their home in central Maryland known by many as “The Land of Pleasant Living.” This beautiful region has over ½ million residents who are drawn to the area’s quality of life on the Chesapeake Bay. In addition to its proximity to Baltimore. MD and Washington, D.C., this area’s vibrant communities, growing economies, great public and private schools and colleges and diverse community organizations and activities make the area an ideal place to raise a family. Housing options to match anyone’s desires -- rural life with room for animals, neighborhoods in the suburbs or in the city, or waterfront properties on creeks, rivers, or the Bay -- add to the region’s draw.

For outdoor enthusiasts, you have easy access to over 500 miles of shoreline. The Chesapeake Bay area is known for boating, fishing, crabbing, water skiing, sailing, and swimming. For nature lovers, there are two state parks, over 120 county parks and several nature preserves. Add to this the people of Maryland -- friendly, welcoming, and kind -- and you will understand why our region is a great place to be!
