MSM Membership

MSM currently has 89 members in Massachusetts, Vermont, and Rhode Island. Student enrollment at member schools range from 6-550. Annual membership dues are based on student enrollment.

New Member Schools interested in becoming MSM members must agree to abide by the standards and code of ethics of AMI and/or AMS. New member applications will be reviewed and voted on at the MSM Board of Directors meeting following the receipt of membership application (typically meetings occur monthly). New members will not be added to the website or be able to post positions until a vote has been. Interested schools should contact Todd Covert, MSM Membership Committee Chair, at to discuss member benefits and receive a new member application.

Renewing Schools will be contacted by the Membership Committee Chair with details about the coming year's membership. If you are renewing a member and need to update your school's information for the year, simply log into your account and follow the instructions provided. Updating your school's information is important so prospective families can easily get accurate information about your school and so that MSM can contact the appropriate people about opportunities for the coming year.
