The MassAccess Board of Directors met on May 22, 2022 at WinCam in Winchester, MA with some members present and some members meeting virtually via Zoom. We discussed the Spring Conference, Fall Meet & Greets, bringing on new board members, and some legislation.
We are currently buttoning up preparations for the Spring Conference, the first in-person Spring Conference since 2019. As a reminder, we’ll be at the Sheraton in Framingham on June 17, 2022, with doors opening at 8:30 a.m. If you register by May 31, 2022, you’ll be entered into many fabulous prizes graciously given to us by our sponsors. We want to thank all of the sponsors who gave these amazing prizes to the event. To register for the conference, please visit this link to learn more. If you have any further questions about the conference, please reach out to our co-chairs Alex LaMarche at email@example.com or Liz Harkins at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have started the planning process with our upcoming Fall Meet & Greet series. Get ready to save these dates: October 14th North of Boston, October 19 South of Boston, and October 26 in Western Massachusetts. We will have more information to come soon following the Spring Conference, so keep an eye out on the forum and our social media platforms for more information moving forward. If you have any questions about the Fall Meet & Greets, reach out to Jonathan Grabowski at email@example.com.
The MassAccess Board of Directors is now offering trial board seats for the remainder of 2022. Our bylaws state that we are allowed up to 11 board members, but we’re currently operating with just eight. We thought it might be a good idea to allow some folks to get a sense of what it’s like to work on our board before making any kind of long-term commitment.
Anyone choosing to take on a trial board seat this year will have until 12/1/22 to decide if he or she would like to be considered for a vacant one, two, or three-year board term at the MassAccess Annual Meeting in January. We’re looking for folks who are interested in production, online presence, event planning, member development, and more. If you think you have what it takes, simply drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Things are slow-moving with H.130. It has been extended in committee as many of you know. The bill is not dead yet and once we get news, we will share it with the membership. So keep an eye out on the forum for further information. Our First Friday Conference Call will be on June 3rd, 2022 on DialPad. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not be hesitant to reach out. Thanks for being a member and we hope to see you soon.
