The Massachusetts Selectmen’s Association, a member group of the MMA, is seeking selectmen for its Board of Directors.
Any selectman in Massachusetts may complete the online nomination form and submit his or her name for consideration. The nomination form, found below, must be completed by Oct. 12.
Nominations are being sought for four MSA officer positions – president, first vice president, second vice president and secretary – and five district representatives. With the exception of the secretary, all MSA Board members also serve on the MMA Board of Directors.
The five MSA districts are as follows:
District 1: Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire counties
District 2: Essex and Middlesex counties
District 3: Bristol, Norfolk and Suffolk counties
District 4: Barnstable, Dukes, Nantucket and Plymouth counties
District 5: Worcester County
MSA officers serve a one-year term (2018), and district representatives serve two-year terms (2019-2020).
Board responsibilities include attendance at MSA and MMA Board meetings. The MSA Board meets four to six times a year, and the MMA Board meets eight Tuesdays per year in Boston. Board responsibilities also include participation at regional and statewide meetings for selectmen.
After interviewing all nominees, the MSA Nominating Committee will prepare a single 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, 2019.
