MASC Membership

There are benefits to MASC membership beyond participating in statewide events, so we encourage schools to join MASC year-round. However, at the present time, as announced, convention registration will only be open to schools that applied by Jan 25 and completed their membership. If circumstances change in the weeks during convention registration, MASC will make that announcement, but it will only extend eligibility to member schools that applied AFTER the Jan 25 date.
