Kamenetz served as the association's second vice president in 2016 and has been a member since 1994, when he was first elected to the Baltimore County Council.

The role of president increases Kamenetz's visibility in 2017, as he weighs whether to run for governor in 2018.

Del. Maggie McIntosh, a Baltimore Democrat, has also said she is considering a gubernatorial bid.

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan is expected to run for re-election.
