The Montgomery County Middle Eastern American Advisory Group (MEAAG) is one of several ethnic organizations under the Office of Community Partnerships that ensure that the County Executive is well informed and able to respond to the needs of the county's diverse communities. MEAAG meets regularly, and many meetings are open to the public.
The mission of the Office of Community Partnerships (OCP) is to strengthen relationships between the Montgomery County government and the residents it serves, with special focus on underserved and emerging communities and our neighbors in need. The OCP serves as a bridge builder between the County government and community organizations serving the residents of Montgomery County, working across the barriers of race, ethnicity, income, and religion that too often diminish communities.
