A panel interacts with attendees of the Women Elected Municipal Officials’ spring symposium in April.

Women Elected Municipal Officials, an association within the MMA’s membership, is seeking members for its 2023 steering committee.

Any female mayor, select board member, or city or town councillor in Massachusetts may complete the online nomination form and submit their name for consideration by Nov. 15.

The WEMO steering committee consists of one mayor, two select board members and two city or town councillors. The chair position rotates each year in the following order: select board member, mayor, city or town councillor.

Nominations are being sought for three officer positions: chair, first vice chair, and second vice chair. The 2023 chair must be a select board member. WEMO officers serve a one-year term.

Nominations are also being sought for two director positions, also for one-year terms.

WEMO steering committee responsibilities include attendance at WEMO committee meetings and planning content for WEMO virtual and in-person events, including the Annual WEMO Luncheon at the MMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show. The WEMO committee meets virtually on a monthly basis.

After interviewing all nominees, the WEMO Nominating Committee will prepare a slate of nominations for election during the WEMO Luncheon, to be held during the MMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show on Jan. 20, 2023.
