Welcome to the Maryland State Society

Founded in 1924, The Maryland State Society of Washington, DC serves as a social and civic organization that celebrates the culture, history, traditions, and people of each respective state through outstanding events. These events include, the National Cherry Blossom Festival, Presidential Inaugural events, and Congressional Receptions. State society organizations are non-partisan and bring together people from all walks of life; such as Members of Congress, both federal and state; military staff; business leaders; actively social families; retired people – all through fellowship and goodwill. Maryland is one of the oldest state societies, founded in April of 1924 and is a member of the National Conference of State Societies. Our social calendar will be highlighted with annual events that include our Annual Meeting in June, a Crab Pickin’ in the Fall, and the Maryland Cherry Blossom Princess Reception in April. In the coming months and years, we would like to include brunches, picnics, educational programs, and congressional seminars. Membership is open to anyone who wishes to devote him or herself to Maryland interests as set forth in the Mission Statement. The Maryland State Society is a member of the National Conference of State Societies
