Countdown to Spring Conference 2 months, 22 days, 9 hours, 0 minutes ago

The MASC Spring Conference is held annually to provide students with both motivational and educational experiences. The three-day, two-night conference is held at the Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis and Cape Codder Hotel.  These three days are full of events, motivational speeches, workshops, awards, and entertainment—and are a rewarding experience for any student leader. Attendees are trained in areas of leadership, allowed to network with students from across Massachusetts, and celebrated as student leaders for their achievements throughout the year.

The 40th MASC Spring Conference will be held from Wednesday March 8 to Friday March 10, 2017. The MASC Executive Board members work hard all year to make these three days as successful and exciting as possible. Online registration begins at noon on January 9, 2017.

Workshops

In addition to the general session, the Annual Spring Conference features small and large group workshops which allow all the delegates an opportunity to share ideas and learn new skills. Workshops are not only presented by advisors, alumni, motivational speakers, and other adults and organizations, but also by MASC student delegates. Each school attending the conference is strongly encouraged to present one workshop at the conference. By presenting a workshop, students can share their knowledge and experiences with other students and also improve their own leadership skills. Traditional topics include teamwork, communication, event planning, organization, and spirit.

Small group workshop applications are available online in the MASC Online Registration Portal.

Lip Sync Contest

The Annual MASC Lip Sync Contest is always a popular part of the first day in Hyannis! Councils compete to be crowned Lip Sync Champions. Space is limited due to time. Spots are allotted to councils on a first come first serve basis. Applications are online in the MASC Registration Portal.

Entertainment

For years, Club T Productions has been the entertainment provider of the Spring Conference and a major sponsor of MASC. Club T Productions is a multimedia entertainment company located in Canton, Massachusetts. They have many sound and lighting packages available for that “special dance.”
