Monday, November 30, 2015 was a historical day in the life of MAAC. After years of planning, strategizing and looking at multiple models, our governance structure shifted. The Board officially became a community member governance board, expanded from a provider only board. For many that may seem like a small step, but it was one of the most significant days in MAAC’s 20 year history and fundamental to its future.
