Representatives

Each member council can appoint a representative to attend State Council meetings, exercise their council’s vote and provide regular reports to their council on our activities.

To nominate for election as MAV president or as a member of our Board, you must be appointed as your council’s representative.

Appointments for MAV representatives are made annually by each council.
