MMCA seeks councillors, aldermen for board

The Massachusetts Municipal Councillors’ Association, a member group of the MMA, is seeking councillors and aldermen for its 2020 Board of Directors.

Any councillor or alderman 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 the three officer positions on the MMCA Board of Directors: president, first vice president and second vice president. (District representatives are not up for election this year, as they are in the middle of a two-year term.)

MMCA officers serve a one-year term. MMCA Board members also serve on the MMA Board of Directors.

Board responsibilities include attendance at MMCA and MMA Board meetings and participation in the planning of MMCA regional and statewide meetings for councillors and aldermen. (The MMA Board of Directors meets eight Tuesdays per year, in Boston from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.)

After interviewing all nominees, the MMCA Nominating Committee will prepare a slate of nominations for election during the MMCA’s Annual Business Meeting, to be held during the MMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show on Jan. 25, 2020.

For more information about the MMCA, including the list of communities in each district, visit their member group page on the MMA website.
