The nomination process for the six open seats on the MASB Board of Directors is now underway. This is a great opportunity to take your board service to the next stage by serving at the state level.

The following seats are up for election (one seat each; three-year terms unless otherwise noted):

  • Region 1
  • Region 2 (one-year term)
  • Region 2
  • Region 4
  • Region 5
  • Region 6

To determine which region/group your district is in, visit the MASB website.

To be eligible, you must have served as a qualified trustee of an Active or Academy member board of education for at least one year and have completed the Fundamentals of School Board Service (CBA 101) course at the time of your nomination to office. Only one MASB Director can be elected or appointed from any one local or intermediate school district board.

If you meet these requirements, then complete this application by no later than Jan. 8, 2020. Please note that you must be nominated by your district school board and include a copy of the letter or minutes denoting this as part of your application; otherwise, it’s providing basic contact and background information along with an election statement (no more than 400 words) and headshot.

The time commitment for individuals serving on the MASB Board minimally includes:

  • Five or six one-day meetings during the fiscal year, (usually Fridays and may include a retreat/meeting).
  • Service on an Association and/or a Board Committee and possibly service as a chairperson. This may involve several additional weekday meetings per year.

If more than one nomination is received for an open seat, ballots will be sent to districts within that region/group by Jan. 24, 2020 to cast their vote. The full slate of new Directors will be announced by March 5, 2020.

Complete details are available on the MASB website or by contacting Board Liaison Cheryl Huffman at or 517.327.5915.
