MASC Executive Board Staff Application

Middle School Ambassadors Wanted!

MASC is excited to add Middle School Ambassadors to the appointed staff of the executive board.  The middle school ambassador will work with the divisional liaison (an appointed high school student) from their division to contact middle schools in their division and serve as a point of contact for MASC. They must have good time management skills to juggle this position’s communication tasks, school work, and other outside activities.

Applications:  Wednesday, May 25 through an extended deadline of 5:00 p.m., the last day of each month.  There will be a rolling deadline at the end of each month until all positions are filled with qualified middle school students.  Please disregard the original deadlines listed in the application packet.

IMPORTANT:  a student does not have to be from a region in the division, especially for divisions 6-7-8 as we do not have active regions with MASC in those divisions and the important responsibility is outreach to the individual schools.  Many of the Eastern Shore counties only have one or two middle schools!

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!
