MDCD is in business solely to protect and serve the interests of Maryland, District of Columbia and Delaware Broadcasters.
MDCD is a strong and respected Association that enjoys a great deal of support from its member stations; however, the Association cannot be truly successful unless it can count on the support of every station in the state. MDCD needs to be able to include your station(s) on the membership roster in order to be fully representative of the area broadcast industry. When Association representatives lobby in the state or Washington on issues of importance to every broadcaster, they need to be able to tell state and national leaders that they speak on behalf of EVERY broadcaster in the state.
