MASC/MASS 2022 Joint Conference

Promoting Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Join your colleagues from across the state at the 2022 MASC/ MASS Joint Conference in Hyannis (November 2-5, 2022). After the past two years of pandemic-related cancellations/reconfigurations, we are working to bring back a full-service, reinvigorated conference event. We are also designing our program to allow for contingencies, should we need to make accommodations for attendee safety in November.

Exhibitor Information

Exhibitor Photo

A popular feature of the MASC/MASS Joint Conference is the exhibit floor, which hosts companies and organizations from a wide variety of industries and disciplines. Attendance and interest in the event grows consistently each year and spaces for exhibitors sell out quickly - be sure to reserve your space quickly once exhibitor to guarantee a spot.

The MASC Delegate Assembly

The Annual MASC Delegate Assembly is held each year during this conference, at which time new MASC officers are elected and the Delegate Assembly considers resolutions submitted in conformance with the MASC By-Laws. Members submit resolutions to be considered at the Assembly, which often result in the filing of legislation by MASC or the establishment of official positions on legislative and other issues.

In order for your school committee to have a vote at this meeting, districts must be active members of MASC (in compliance with annual dues regulations as spelled out in the MASC By-Laws). Member districts may designate a school committee member as a voting delegate (an alternate delegate may also be designated) and notify MASC using the official Delegate Form no later than October 17, 2022. A Delegate Manual with resolutions to be considered and voting instructions is available here.

The 2022 Delegate Assembly will be held on Wednesday, November 2, 2022.

Delegates who attend only the business meeting do not need to register for the conference; if a delegate plans to attend any other conference programming or functions, they do need to register for the conference.
