MWIA Information

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 association's by-laws.


Board meetings are normally held at 7:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month (except in July and August). Ordinarily, every other Board meeting is open to the public and we are currently hosting most meetings on Zoom. The Annual Member Meeting is held on the second Tuesday in June. See our meetings dates with agendas and minutes here

If you wish to attend a closed meeting, please contact the President with your request.


Membership in Mount Washington Improvement Association is open to residents of Mount Washington, and the annual dues are $40. All MWIA members in good standing (i.e., who have paid their dues in full for the current year) are entitled to vote at the Annual Member Meeting in June.
