Maryland Geological Survey Commission
The Maryland Geological Survey Commission acts in an advisory capacity to the Director of the Survey with respect to matters within the Survey’s jurisdiction. It consists of five members appointed by the Secretary from among citizens of the State who have character, ability, and active interest in the proper development, use, and conservation of geologic, mineral, and water resources. The members shall select their own chairman. A member's term of office is five years. The Secretary may remove any member for cause, and any vacancy shall be filled for the unexpired term. A member may not receive compensation for his services, but shall be reimbursed for necessary travel expenses and disbursements made in order to attend any meeting or perform any other official duty.
At the present time the Maryland Geological Commission is inactive and all members terms have expired.
