Hosting MASC Events

Thank you for your interest in hosting a MASC event.  Without host schools/regions, it would be difficult for MASC to fulfill its mission: to foster a statewide environment for all secondary school students to express and exchange opinions and ideas, develop leadership skills, and promote student representation and involvement in all groups and organizations impacting the lives of students.

Throughout the year, there are large and small events for which MASC needs hosts.  Our major conferences, Fall Leadership Conference, Legislative Session, and Convention, require an interested school(s)/region(s) to present a “bid” for the event at an executive board meeting.  The executive board then votes to award the “bid” to the host.

Smaller events, yet equally important are our executive board meetings, technical training days (training for student leaders to become MASC “certified” workshop presenters), and staff development (for the appointed MASC staff).  For these events, an application is completed and forwarded to the executive director.  The officer team selects the host based on several criteria including geographical location.  MASC strives to have our events all over the state and not just in one or two areas.

Below you will find the information for the 2018-2019 school year.  Bids/Applications will be accepted starting at the June 2, 2018, executive board meeting.  If you have any questions, please email Assistant Executive Director Karen Crawford (
