MDFMA Seeking New Board of Directors Members

by Amy Crone
Here at MDFMA, we are thrilled that markets are beginning to open and are looking forward to another great market season, and continued growth of our organization. To do this well, we need more Board of Directors members to help us.
We are seeking to fill several Board spots, and in particular are seeking an inclusive group that is representative of more geographic regions in the state of Maryland. We seek engaged individuals ready to jump in to help further our mission as we grow and enter into a strategic planning process. For more information on what becoming a Board member entails, please see the MDFMA Board of Directors Description.

If you want to join our Board fill out this MDFMA Board of Directors Interest Form to let us know more about you and why you would be a good fit.

Thank you in advance for your support of our work – either through submitting a Board interest form or by forwarding this information to someone who you feel would be a good fit – we are excited to continue working to advance healthy eating, improve food access and justice, and support the agricultural communities that grow our food.
