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 members for its 2021 Board of Directors.
Any select board member in Massachusetts may complete the online nomination form and submit his or her name for consideration. The nomination form must be completed by Oct. 16.
Nominations are being sought for four officer positions: president, first vice president, second vice president and secretary. MSA officers serve a one-year term.
The five district representatives are also up for election this year, for two-year terms.
With the exception of the secretary, MSA Board members also serve on the MMA Board of Directors.
MSA 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 on the second Tuesday of most months, typically in Boston from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Due to the COVID pandemic, the board is currently meeting virtually from 10 to 11 a.m. on the second Tuesday of most months.) Board responsibilities also include participation at regional and statewide meetings for select board members.
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 virtually in January 2021.
