Elections Process FAQ

What should my candidate statement contain?

As part of your self nomination, please submit a 2-3 paragraph candidate statement to the Election Committee. The statement may include why you want to serve, what experience you would bring to the board, and how you have been active in the MSA community. This statement will be posted on the MSA website during the election and your name will appear on the ballot.  

Do I have the required skills and expertise?

Absolutely! The school hires qualified experts in school administration, education and employment law, accounting, and other technical matters. If you are a parent or guardian of an enrolled MSA student and are interested in ensuring MSA’s continued success, you have exactly what we need.
