Maine Association of Student Councils
Sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association
ANNUAL STATE CONFERENCE
April 6, 2018
Dear Principal and/or Student Council Advisor,
The Maine Association of Student Councils (MASC) wishes to welcome all to the State Conference. MASC, with a student led executive committee and sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, has developed a plan to transform leadership opportunities for Maine students. MASC invites Maine high school and junior high/middle schools to join our association. Student council provides an opportunity for students to lead their schools in a positive and active style. We provide guidance at the local, regional, state, and national levels. Membership provides your school access to workshops, meetings, information, and the opportunity to communicate with fellow student councils.
The Maine Association of Student Councils’ annual dues is $60 per school. Dues cover part of the cost of venues for the Leadership Conference in December, as well as the State Conference in May.
The theme for the 2017-2018 school year is P.R.I.D.E. – Personal Responsibility in Delivering Excellence. The state conference is a full day event with the opportunities for students to hear from keynote speakers, have a chance to collaborate with other student councils, and elect the 2018-2019 officers for the Maine Student Council Advisory Committee.
This year’s state-wide service project is the Travis Mills Foundation. The Travis Mills Foundation’s mission is to support combat injured veterans and their families through long term programs that help these heroic men and women overcome physical obstacles, strengthen their families, and provide well-deserved rest and relaxation.
Your student council can be part of the exciting activities in your school. Regional conferences will be planned with your newly elected state officers and will take place in April throughout the state.
