For all members schools, they get to select a MAASU Representative. M-Reps, for short, are the official liaison between member schools and the MAASU Executive Coordinating Committee (ECC). As stated in the MAASU Constitution, each school may only have one M-Rep.
The roles, duties, and responsibilities of the M-Rep consists of the following:
- Respond to emails and messages from MAASU Communications chairs or other members of the ECC when necessary
- Update his/her/their school’s APIA organization on MAASU information regarding campaigns, conferences, and fundraisers
- Has the power to submit one vote for conference bids, ECC elections, and constitutional changes
- During the Spring Conference, the M-Rep votes for schools bidding to host Leadership Summit and Spring Conference for the upcoming year
- The M-Reps elect the ECC for the upcoming year
- If amendments are made to the constitution, the M-Rep has the power to accept or decline the changes
- Voting requires a two-thirds attendance in order to reach quorum
- M-Reps will miss at least one workshop and possibly one small group meeting during Spring Conference for voting
- Connect with fellow M-Rep peers and Communications Chairs
- M-Reps will serve a full academic year in conjunction with the Communications Chairs. Should any M-Rep need to step down for any reasons, please have the institution replace the M-Rep and connect them immediately to the Communications Chairs for updates.
