About the Montgomery County Civic Federation
The mission of the MCCF is to preserve and improve the quality of life for all current and future
residents of Montgomery County, Maryland. Since its founding in 1925, the volunteers of the MCCF
have committed themselves to providing an effective citizen voice to government policy makers, both
elected and appointed.
The Civic Federation is a not-for-profit, county-wide umbrella group designed to promote
cooperation, education and effectiveness of civic and community associations in Montgomery
County. It addresses a wide range of concerns in transportation, land use, environment, education,
budget and finance, health and human services, public safety, and ethics. With its strength of
numbers and thoroughness of its deliberations, the Federation influences county policy and
balances the activities of vested county pressure groups.
The MCCF membership consists of neighborhood associations, as well as homeowner and
condominium associations, which appoint voting delegates to the Federation. In addition, individuals
may join as non-voting Individual Associates. The membership year runs from July 1 through the
following June 30.
The Federation meets monthly, on the second Monday evening of each month (except July and
August), in the first floor auditorium of the County Council Building in Rockville. Most monthly
delegate assemblies include an informational program, on a timely topic of interest, followed by the
business portion of the meeting. The public is welcome to attend.
The MCCF monitors county and state policies and legislation affecting our communities and quality of
life. It also conducts in-depth studies of critical issues, and often adopts Resolutions or positions on
them which are communicated to government. Recognized as the primary voice of residents, the
Federation is given representation on several county boards, commissions, advisory committees and
