MEMBERSHIP: M.G.L. c. 10, §58 Local councils consist of at least five but no more than 22 members appointed by the top appointing official in the community. The term of membership for a council member is three years; members can serve a maximum of two consecutive terms, or a
total of six years, unless the appointing authority removes a member before the expiration of a term as provided in 962 CMR 2.10. Members must remain off the council for a one-year interval before serving additional terms. Each council must annually elect a chair, secretary and treasurer. To preserve continuity of operations, the terms of individual council members should be staggered (that is, there should never be 100 percent turnover of members in a single year, unless the MCC determines otherwise, as provided in 962 CMR 2.10). Local councils may also elect to designate former officers or members as non-voting, ex officio council members.
MEETINGS: The Carlisle Cultural Council meets on the 3rd Friday of each month at 8:00 AM at the Town Hall, 66 Westford St., Carlisle.
