Structure of MASW Board

MASW members elect the officers and at-large members of the MASW Board of Directors.  The Board Development - Nominating Committee submits a slate of proposed officers and at-large board members for approval at the Annual Members' Meeting, held at MASW's Annual Conference.  The most recent election was Friday, November 4, 2011.

Terms for officers are two years, with the President, 2nd Vice President, and Treasurer elected in odd-numbered years, and the 1st Vice President and Secretary elected in even-numbered years.  The sixth officer is the Immediate Past President, whose term is concurrent with the President's.

Terms for at-large board members are two years, with six seats elected in even-numbered years, and six seats elected in odd-numbered years.  The numbers in parentheses above indicated that the officer's or at-large member's term will expire in 2012 (12) or 2013 (13).

In addition to the 18 people elected to the board (officer or at-large) by MASW members at our annual statewide meeting, each of MASW's local chapters elects a local board, and the chair of that board automatically is part of the MASW statewide board of directors.

Also, anyone appointed by the board as chair of a task force (concerned with a particular area of public policy) or board committee (concerned with organizational issues of the association) is, by virtue of that chair position, a member of the MASW Board of Directors.  Most, but not all, of the current task force and board committee chairs are elected at-large board members or officers.  Each person on the board has one vote, even if they hold more than one position that includes board membership.

Are you interested in becoming a board member? Please complete the Application for Board of Directors and mail, fax, or e-mail it to MASW, Attention: Bob Quinn, Executive Director.
