We invite you to step up as a leader in your MACC network. MACC's Board of Directors and leadership committees are made up of leaders from our member organizations and our community who have a passion for the vital work that community-based human service nonprofits do.

MACC's leadership committees are separate from, but work in close partnership with MACC's Board of Directors. Each committee provides counsel and advice to the Board in their respective area of work. You do not need to be a board member to serve on a committee. MACC's current committees are:

  • Finance Commitee: The Finance Committee’s role is to ensure the financial strength and sustainability of MACC.

Who we're looking for:

We're looking for individuals committed to collaboration who are interested in growing and sharing their leadership experience and expanding their network of relationships. We are looking for board members that bring a diversity of thought and life experience, are able to ask good questions, and are dedicated to showing up for their nonprofit community. In order for MACC to thrive we need to tap into a broad range of ways to engage with the world, identify challenges, and build collaborative solutions.

It's critical that our network leadership reflect the diversity of our network of human service nonprofits and the vibrant communities they serve. We especially welcome individuals who have historically been excluded from leadership in our sector: individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Culture, LGBTQIA+, individuals with disabilities, veterans, and people of any age or family status.
