Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Holiday Commission

The Howard County Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Commission was established by order of the Howard County Executive to “…encourage and coordinate appropriate ceremonies and activities honoring Martin Luther King, Jr...”

The seventeen-member Commission meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in Room 303 at 6751 Columbia Gateway Dr., Columbia, MD, at which time, plans for the annual commemoration of Dr. King's birthday are made.

County residents are continually sought to fill Commission vacancies, as well as fill positions on various subcommittees. Commissioners are appointed by the County Executive to serve an initial term of two years.

Persons interested in serving on the Commission should contact the Office of Human Rights at (410) 313-6430.
