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 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 at its February executive board meeting.

Smaller events, yet equally important are our executive board meetings, workshop certification (training for student leaders to become MASC “certified” workshop presenters), staff development (for the appointed MASC staff), and the Women’s Leadership Forum.  For these events, an application is completed and forwarded to the executive director(s).  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.  Executive board meetings and other smaller events will be decided at the end of August and after that as they are submitted.

Below you will find the information for the 2020-2021 school year.  Bids/Applications will be accepted starting at the February, executive board meeting.  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).

Due to the social distancing to help stop the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the CoronaVirus, MASC is making alternative virtual plans for events in the immediate present and short -term future.  Thank you for your understanding as the health and warfare of our students and advisors is most important.
