Councilwoman Marcason elected to MML Board of Directors
The Missouri Municipal League elected Councilwoman Jan Marcason, 4th District In-District, to its Board of Directors at its annual conference in St. Charles, Mo. last week.
As an independent, statewide, not-for-profit association the League aims "to develop an agency for the cooperation of Missouri cities, towns and villages and to promote the interest, welfare and closer relations among them in order to improve municipal government and administration in the state." Thus, the League's basic goal is to strengthen cities through unity and cooperation.
The Missouri Municipal League is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of a president, vice president, active past presidents, 12 elected municipal officials and five appointed municipal officials; with at least one Board member from each Congressional District.
Councilwoman Marcason currently serves as a member of the MML’s Resolutions Committee, which determines the legislative priorities for the organization.
“It is important for Kansas City to continue to serve in a leadership role in MML and other state and national organizations,” said Bill Skaggs, mayor pro tem and past MML president. “We have a lot to contribute and a lot to gain from this involvement. Marcason will be an outstanding representative for our city.”
