helping aquarists become more successful since 1931
  • Board of Directors

MAS Board Meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. and are open to members of the Minnesota Aquarium Society.  Most but not all months, these are held at Mike Fries fishroom.
If you plan to attend, please contact a Board member in advance to confirm the location of that month's meeting.

The following is a summary from the MAS Bylaws as ratified in 2016...

The board consists of six elected positions: president, vice-president, four directors; and three appointed positions: treasurer, secretary and under-director.

Elected officers serve for two years. A new president is elected every year along with two of the four directors. The outgoing president becomes the vice-president.  Terms for the elected positions begin upon the conclusion of the June general meeting.

At the beginning of the June meeting for the Board of Directors, as the new board is meeting for the first time, members may be nominated for the appointed positions (treasurer, secretary, under-director).  These officers are appointed by a majority vote of the current directors.
