Elections Committee

The MassCUE Elections Committee oversees the entire election process, including nominations, vetting nominees, running the election and reporting results. The MassCUE Elections Committee also collaborates with the Board on seeking appointments to the Board.

MassCUE Spring Elections — Nominations open from March 11, 2019 to March 25, 2019

This spring, MassCUE will elect the three (3) at-large officers to the MassCUE Board of Directors: President-elect, Secretary, and Treasurer. Any MassCUE member who meets the requirements and is interested in serving on the Board is encouraged to nominate themselves or another eligible member.

Each term is for 2 1/2 years. The President-elect automatically serves a second term as President. The newly-elected members of the board serve side-by-side with current board members from the time they are elected until after the conference in the fall of October 2019 when the transition period has concluded, and the retiring members leave the Board. MassCUE Board of Directors determine the type and direction of MassCUE’s activities throughout the year and provide the leadership behind the many great events and resources available to members. We are a very active and engaged board and are seeking candidates that want to work hard and support MassCUE’s Vision and Strategic Plan.

After elections of officers, the Governing Board may appoint seven additional members to balance representation geographically and by educational responsibility. MassCUE members who wish to serve on the Board should consider applying for an appointed position.
