The Carlisle Cultural Council is established to allow residents of Carlisle to review and award funds from the Massachusetts Cultural Council to organizations that offer a variety of cultural experiences to the residents of Carlisle. Participating organizations need not reside in Carlisle, but must state in their application that their performance(s) benefit the residents of Carlisle.
The Carlisle Cultural Council meets on the third Friday of each month at 8:00 am in Town Hall,66 Westford StreetCarlisle, MA 01741
Per the State of Massachusetts, each local council consists 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 appointing authority removes a member before the expiration of a term as provided in 962 CML 2.10. Members must remain off the council for a one-year interval before serving additional terms.
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 MCCdetermines 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.
