General Information:

Board Members Responsibilities Policy

Code of Conduct

Every other year in April we elect the four (4) at-large members to the MassCUE Board of Directors.

This year we will also hold a special election to fill a partial term vacancy for President-Elect.  The person elected will assume the Presidency at the end of that term in 2021. Candidate for President-Elect must have actively served as a member of the Board of Directors for at least one full term (2 years, April-April) and within the past five (5) years prior to the current election.

 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 2020 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 seek candidates that want to work hard and support MassCUE’s vision and strategic plan which can be found at https://masscue.wpengine.com/pages/MassCUE/About_MassCUE/Mission_and_Goals
