> Our Leadership

A Board of Directors governs the Collaboration Council’s work.

The Collaboration Council Board is comprised of parents and other advocates for children — individuals, as well as representatives of organizations, public and private providers of services, members of the business and faith communities, government leaders and elected officials. Together, Collaboration Council board members provide leadership in the development of an innovative and integrated system of educational, health, and human services to effectively address the needs of families in Montgomery County. The 21 member Board is appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Council.  Share your thoughts, questions and concerns with our Board members and staff.
