Hosting MASC Events

MASC is currently seeking hosts for our events that we MIGHT be able to hold in-person in the foreseeable future.  Some events will remain virtual and as restrictions are lifted or put into place, MASC will remain flexible to switch to virtual as needed. 

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 major conferences and several 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.  MASC opens the bid process as soon as the updated bid packet is posted.

Some of our “smaller events”, yet equally important are our workshop certification (training for student leaders to become MASC “certified” workshop presenters), staff development day (for the appointed MASC staff), Women’s Leadership Forum, and other webinars we plan on leaving as a virtual event so we are able to reach more students from around the state.

The Advance is a three-day, two-night (as overnights are allowed) event that combines a workshop presenter certification, planning and training for the Fall Leadership Conference, and our first executive board meeting for the year and our Executive Board Meetings require an application that is completed and forwarded to the executive director(s).  The officer team selects the host based on several criteria including budget and geographical location.  MASC strives to have our events all over the state and not just in one or two areas.   MASC will be working on live-streaming these events.

Below you will find the information for the 2021-2022 school year.   If you have any questions, please email executive Director Nicete Moodie (Nicete.Moodie@mdstudentcouncils.org) or Assistant Executive Director Karen Crawford (Karen.Crawford@mdstudentcouncils.org).
