At the end of each year we elect a member to the Board of Directors, and we also recognize a non-member with the MassLandlords Good Neighbor award. MassLandlords is a 501(c)6 nonprofit trade association. Members like you set our direction.
Our annual meeting this year will be conducted electronically only. The four event locations that would normally host in-person voting are closed. Electronic voting will take place at MassLandlords.net/governance starting Nov. 29, 2021 and running through Dec. 21, 2021.
The Record Date is Friday, Nov. 19, which means you must be a member in good standing on that day to vote. Quorum will be 25% of members as of the record date.
Members must pay dues to MassLandlords or a directly managed chapter (service contract chapters have your own elections and cannot vote in MassLandlords, Inc. elections).
The Good Neighbor Award
The Good Neighbor Award is intended to recognize a non-member’s efforts to advance property rights or to improve the quality of rental housing in Massachusetts. All nominees are sent a letter of thanks. The nominee chosen by the membership will receive a commemorative plaque.
The deadline for nominees to appear on the ballot is the Record Date, see above.
The Board of Directors
The Board of Directors are volunteers who oversee the operations of the association. Our legal mission is to create better rental housing in Massachusetts by helping current, new, and prospective landlords run profitable, compliant, and quality businesses. To this end, MassLandlords organizes opportunities for landlord education and networking and advocates appropriate changes to the laws.
At time of writing, one member had been both nominated for election and confirmed willing to run.
Allyson Gray of East Boston is a MassLandlords member, property rights supporter, and crash course graduate. She has extensive landlording experience. Full biography to be published in December.
Directors serve a five-year term. The Board of Directors has no operational responsibility, rather, their job is to oversee. In particular, they must hire or fire the person currently in the Executive Director’s role, if necessary. They must also review financial reports and verify that association business aligns with our mission.
The final deadline to submit names to appear on the ballot is the Record Date, see above. Write-in’s will be allowed.
Log in at MassLandlords.net/governance between Nov. 29, 2021 and Dec. 21, 2021 to view final ballots and biographies, and to vote electronically. The voting page will not be visible before that date, so mark your calendar.
