MAC Meetings

MAC Guidelines

The MAC is made up of three members from each of GVEA’s seven geographic districts, and they:

  • Serve three-year terms (beginning in September)
  • Meet monthly (typically on the second Wednesday of each month), with each meeting lasting about 90 minutes
  • Receive $60 per meeting, plus standard mileage rates for roundtrip travel

MAC members are also asked to serve on various committees (e.g. district nominating, annual meeting, bylaw review and election).

All GVEA members (except employees) are eligible to serve.

Note:  Applications will be available and accepted from May through July each year.
