CMEC is the successor of Maryland Churches United. MCU was created in 1972 when the Maryland Council of Churches was dissolved. The board of CMEC includes appointed representatives from the local association, conference, diocese or other judicatory of denominations (Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox) that have congregations and services in the State of Maryland.
As of June 6, 2011, CMEc was one of the 6,000+ exempt non profits that has its exemption revoked. This was caused by an error in unstanding itself as an association of churches, exempt from filing 990's. IRS thought otherwise. Re-application was begun immediately, and the board is taking the opportunity to revise by-laws, and update its policies.
Currently, CMEC is not soliciting donations from private individuals. Congregations and judicatories continue to contribute during this re-filing period.
CMEC is affiliated with the National Council of Churches of Christ, and also have affilitted partners from other faiths.
