Prince George’s County Municipal Association (PGCMA) is an association of Prince George’s County elected and appointed municipal leaders working together to benefit the residents of our 27 municipalities, Prince George’s County, and the State of Maryland.
PGCMA is one of nine regional chapters of the Maryland Municipal League, created for the purpose of facilitating communication and cooperation within the League and between municipalities and other levels of state and local government. Chapters are governed by bylaws approved and recognized by the Board of Directors. Chapter membership is open to all League member municipalities within the chapter area.
Our mission is to bring Prince George’s County elected and appointed municipal leaders together to jointly work on issues and programs that will benefit our municipalities and residents, Prince George’s County, and the State of Maryland.
