Who is a member?
Our members are the local governments of Massachusetts and their elected and appointed leadership.
Small Town Administrators of Massachusetts (STAM) provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and information among small town Administrators. The organization provides an opportunity for professional self-improvement, advancement of the municipal management profession, and increased communication within the profession. Most importantly, it offers Administrators a network of peers to discuss specific and unique interests.
STAM has 70 members, representing 58 towns and 12 associate member organizations across the Commonwealth. STAM operates under a set of bylaws, which includes a Code of Ethics governing the professional conduct of every member.
• Full membership is open to one administrative employee in a Massachusetts municipality with a population of less than 10,000.
• Associate membership is open to those who have an interest in the goals and activities of small towns. Associate members have no voting privileges.
