Assuming duties of the State Council on Vocational-Technical Education in 1993, the Board served as Maryland's human resource investment council under the federal Job Training Partnership Act (Chapter 463, Acts of 1993). Later that year, the Board was made an agency separate from the Department of Economic and Employment Development (Executive Order 01.01.1993.30). The Board reorganized as the Governor's Work Force Investment Board in August 1998 (Executive Order 01.01.1998.23).
In accordance with federal law, the Board helps plan, coordinate, and monitor State programs and services for work force investment.
The Board consists of up to forty members. Two are appointed by the Senate President, and two by the House Speaker. Seven serve ex offico. Appointed by the Governor, the remaining members serve four-years terms. The Governor names the chair (Code Labor and Employment Article, sec. 11-505; Executive Order 01.01.1998.23).

STATE ADVISORY COMMITTEE FOR ADULT & COMMUNITY SERVICES
The State Advisory Committee for Adult and Community Services started in December 1979 as the Advisory Committee for the School-Community Centers Program within the State Department of Education. In 1980, the Committee assumed its present name and broadened its responsibilities to cover adult and community education. In 1993, it was made part of the Work Force Investment Board (Executive Order 01.01.1993.30). The Committee advises the Governor's Work Force Investment Board, the State Department of Education, and the State Superintendent of Schools on matters related to adult education (Executive Order 01.01.1998.23).
