2011 STATE CONFERENCE TO BE HELD IN GLASGOW
High school and middle level student leaders and advisors leave the conference empowered and energized after listening to keynote speakers (scroll down this page to see speaker information on the right), attending student-led small group workshops, participating in a community service project, and networking with peers. A highlight of the annual conference is the home stay program where student delegates are invited into the homes of local community members.
Middle level students and advisors should note that special attention has been given to the programming for middle level students at this conference. Specific workshops on Sunday evening, as well as a special session during the regular business session on Monday morning, have been planned for middle level students. In addition, there will be a separate dance for middle level students on Tuesday night running concurrently with the high school dance.
Please plan to join us in Glasgow for an outstanding leadership training experience, The Drive For Leadership! You won’t want to miss it!

CALL FOR RESOLUTIONS FOR THE BUSINESS SESSION AT THE STATE CONFERENCE!
Resolutions will be presented and debated at the Business Session on Monday morning of the MASC state conference. A resolution is a simply a statement of belief – a suggestion for addressing a specific problem or issue. They do not demand expenditure of time or funds on the part of MASC. Their design is much more philosophical, not dealing with MASC housekeeping, but with issues and practices that affect society-particularly youth now or in the future. Schools are encouraged to submit resolutions for the Business Session to the MASC Executive Board by Tuesday, October 18. Resolutions can be faxed to Jane Suberg at Highwood School. (406-733-2671)
