How to Join

The time is NOW for your school to join the Missouri Association of Student Councils and take advantage of all we have to offer. MASC is sponsored by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP) and is affiliated with National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). It is a voluntary membership organization which provides leadership training activities for member schools. Membership is open to all junior high, middle and high schools, both public and private, in Missouri.

The MASC Executive Board is made up of an Executive Director, 7 District Board Members (elected every 3 years), state president school advisor(s), past state president school advisor(s) and 3 representatives from MASSP. Membership dues are $100 per school and must be paid by December 31 for a school to be a member and to be considered for an Honor Council award. Schools who pay dues after December 31 will be considered non-members and pay a higher rate for all MASC events. Schools should complete a membership form and mail or fax with school check or purchase order. Advisors have the option to join the MASC List Serve (E-mail Executive Director Terri Johnson for more information) to get all the latest in MASC news and information. Member status is updated on the list serve on a monthly basis.
