Maryland Open Meetings Act
(Note: this information is directly from the State of Maryland Attorney General’s website)
Maryland’s Open Meetings Act is a statute that requires many State and local public bodies to hold their meetings in public, to give the public adequate notice of those meetings, and to allow the public to inspect meetings minutes. The Act permits public bodies to discuss some topics confidentially. The Act’s goals are to increase the public’s faith in government, ensure the accountability of government to the public, and enhance the public’s ability to participate effectively in our democracy.
The Open Meetings Compliance Board issues advisory opinions in response to written complaints about violations of the Act. The Compliance Board is an independent State entity, and its three members are appointed by the Governor. Although the Compliance Board is not part of the Office of the Attorney General, the Office provides the Board with administrative staff and legal advice and also publishes its opinions and notices on the Office of Attorney General website. The Compliance Board has no office or budget of its own.
For an overview of the Act, including information on when the Act applies and how the complaint procedure works, see Open Meetings FAQs – A Quick Guide to Maryland’s Open Meetings Act.
For in-depth information on the Act, see the Open Meetings Act Manual (Revised October 2022)
Before submitting a complaint to the Open Meetings Compliance Board, please read the Compliance Board’s Complaint Procedures.
For the steps that a public body must take when a meeting is subject to the Act, see the Compliance Checklist and other forms in the “Forms and Checklist” box below.
The Compliance Board’s opinions can be researched through the topical index.
