Any selectman in Massachusetts may complete the online nomination form and submit his or her name for consideration. The nomination form must be completed by Oct. 18.
Nominations are being sought for four officer positions: president, first vice president, second vice president and secretary. (District representatives are not up for election this year, as they are in the middle of a two-year term.) MSA officers serve a one-year term.
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 eight Tuesdays per year, in Boston from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Board responsibilities also include participation at regional and statewide meetings for selectmen.
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. 25, 2020.
