A Chance to Serve: Join a MASB Committee

Are you looking for a way to be more involved in your Association? Do you want to share your expertise and perspective statewide? Do you want to network and connect with your peers on important discussions that impact education? Serving on one of MASB’s committees may be the right opportunity for you.

MASB committees bring together school board representatives and other members of the educational community to discuss vital issues and help shape your association’s positions and actions.

Standing committees include:

  • Government Relations: This committee monitors state and federal legislative and executive actions, and school finance pertaining to public education and school districts.
  • Resolution and Bylaws: This committee develops and proposes resolutions and bylaws for consideration by the Delegate Assembly, which, upon adoption, become MASB’s official position on those issues.
  • Legal Trust Fund: The Fund assists Michigan school boards involved in litigation having state-wide significance. With the help of the Legal Trust Fund, boards of education can pursue cases they might otherwise have to settle because of the high costs of litigation.

Ad hoc committees are created as needed throughout the year and typically meet once or twice before disbanding, allowing the MASB Board to deal with specific issues with a broad range of input from members.
