The 2014-15 MASC Membership application is now available. We encourage schools to apply for membership as soon as possible, even before this school year actually ends.
The MASC Bylaws are renewed each year, and govern the "day-to-day" processes of the organization. The President is responsible for submitting bylaws for his/her administration. The President is also assisted by the Parliamentarian with writing the Bylaws. The most updated Bylaws are below, which was approved by the Executive Board at the August Executive Board Meeting on August 22nd, 2014.
After discussion at the MASC Advance, the State Charity for the 2014-2015 School Year is Just 4 Us!
The following was taken from the Just 4 Us website:
The Just 4 Us Foundation (J4UF) is a non profit 501 (c) 3 charitable organization whose mission is to improve and impact the quality of life for children with special needs, at risk youth and families.
This training is for any interested student leader who wants to be an MASC trainer and has never had the technical training course. This includes any trainer who has been a workshop presenter/trainer before but has not completed the MASC full training.
Re-certification of student leaders is also being offered at the same time/place.
