This organization is dedicated to improving the neighborhood of Mount
Washington in Baltimore City, Maryland. It is supported by hundreds of members
and governed in a democratic representative manner.
Since its start in 1885, MWIA has a long history of managing new issues and challenges to benefit the overall community and to preserve the character of the neighborhood.
Mount Washington Improvement Association is governed by a board of directors consisting of:
18 at large directors selected for three year terms (each year, six at large
director positions come up for election)
3 honorary directors who are the three immediate past presidents of the
Association; an area director (two year term); and area captains elected for
one year terms.
In late winter/early spring, a nominating committee consisting of board
members and members of the community nominate a slate of board members. That
slate is voted upon at the Annual Member Meeting in June.
From among the board members, the new board then elects officers who serve
for one year. The structure and governance of MWIA are described in the

accommodate a larger audience. The Annual Member Meeting is held on the
second Tuesday in June. See our calendar
