STUDENT LEADERS APPLYING MUST BE FROM A MASC MEMBER SCHOOL for the 2021-2022 school year (Constitution: Article XII, Section 1- A).  Membership for MASC is from July 1 – June 30th every year.  Appointed staff members must work with their school’s advisor and/or administration to be sure that the school is a member no later than mid-November.  Please check the MASC website for the most up-to-date listing of 2020-2021 member schools. (https://mdstudentcouncils.org/index.php/applications/masc-membership-application/)  The membership application for 2021-2022 will open on July 1, 2021.

MASC is a student-led organization for students! Your willingness to serve on the Executive Staff is greatly appreciated. Participation as part of the Executive Staff is a very large commitment and we hope that you will be able to take part in our organization throughout this upcoming school year. To apply for MASC, you must…

  • Be able to fulfill the time commitment that this position holds which eventually includes both in-person and virtual events/conferences and duties that must be fulfilled outside of these times. Understand the time commitment that this position holds by reviewing the current year’s calendar and looking at the draft calendar for the next year using this link: https://mdstudentcouncils.org/index.php/events/.   Understand that staff members are expected to attend all executive board meetings and the three major conferences, along with staff-specific events such as Certified Workshop Presenter training, Staff Development Day, and other departmental trainings and events.
  • Read over the possible positions and their specific duties to decide for which position to apply.
  • Have attended at least one MASC event or conferences such as Convention or an Executive Board meeting.  It is difficult to serve in an organization if you have never attended any meeting or event for that organization!
  • Be from a member school of MASC for 2021-2022.  (see the information at the top of this page).

 

It is important that you read the application packet carefully.  You will also need to go over it with your parents as they will also be making a commitment to MASC in the time they might spend transporting you to meetings and events.  The application also requires a principal’s signature.  

NOT ALL APPLICANTS WILL BE INTERVIEWED. After reviewing the online application, adult recommendation, commitment form, past involvement with the school, regional, and state student council, the applicants will be rated and a number of selected applicants will be invited to interview.  Staff interviews will take place by appointment May 1-8, 2021.  Interviews will be virtual (Zoom).

The application deadline is 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, April 21, 2021.  All of the parts of the application are uploaded through a Google form.  DO NOT USE A SCHOOL DEVICE TO COMPLETE THE GOOGLE FORM.  Many school systems have firewalls that block students from uploading files to a server that is not in their school system.  The adult recommendation is also uploaded through a Google form.  A one-page resume is optional but recommended. All qualified applications are welcome!

Thank you so much for your interest in joining the MASC team.  We are thrilled to have the possibility of working with you this upcoming year!
