The Forvm for Rural Maryland was created by the Governor in 1994 (Executive Order 01.01.1994.14) and in 1995 by the General Assembly (Chapter 119, Acts of 1995). The Forvm is a rural development council which addresses the issues and concerns of rural Marylanders.

Membership is open to any Maryland citizen who subscribes to the goals of the Forvm and has an interest in rural Maryland. In addition, the Forvm includes the Governor, or designee, as a nonvoting member; three State senators and three members of the House of Delegates; representatives from federal agencies that serve rural interests; and representatives from private sector organizations, including rural-based profit and nonprofit organizations and rural client groups.

The Executive Board advises the Forvm on policy matters and their implementation.
