Who is a member?
Our members are the local governments of Massachusetts and their elected and appointed leadership.
The Massachusetts Select Board Association, a member group of the MMA, is seeking nominations for its 2024 Board of Directors.
Nomination submissions will be accepted for four officer positions: president, first vice president, second vice president, and secretary, all of whom serve a one-year term. The District 5 representative, for the second year of a two-year term, is also open for nominations.
With the exception of secretary, MSA board members also serve on the MMA Board of Directors.
Any select board member in Massachusetts may complete the online nomination form and submit his or her name for consideration. The form must be completed by Oct. 20.
MSA board responsibilities include attendance at MSA and MMA Board meetings. The MSA board meets approximately seven times a year, most often following meetings of the MMA board, which meets on the second Tuesday of most months from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The MSA board meets on the same day from 2:15 to 3:30 p.m. These meetings are typically hybrid: Zoom as well as in person at the MMA office in Boston.
Board responsibilities also include working with MMA staff to develop agendas and identify speakers for MSA conferences and webinars, and participation in these events throughout the year. Previous participation in MMA events is strongly preferred.
After interviewing all nominees, the MSA Nominating Committee will prepare a slate of nominations for election during the MSA’s Annual Business Meeting, to be held during the MMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show on Jan. 19 and 20, 2024, in Boston.
