Established in 1950, the New Mexico Association of Student Councils was founded by a group of educators who wanted to create an organization for student leaders that would encourage them to practice the democratic process, citizenship and service while fostering an exchange of ideas and problem solving strategies in New Mexico's schools.

Today, nearly 70 years later, we have become the premier student leadership organization in New Mexico. Each year we serve thousands of students and advisors from member schools all across the state. Our organization is recognized by the National Association of State Student Council Executive Directors and National Student Council, and we offer leadership training experiences for our members throughout the year. Some of these opportunities for leadership and character development include:

  • Fall NMASC/District Conferences

  • Annual State Conference

  • Summer Leadership Workshop

  • Annual attendance at the Region 6 VISION Conference

  • Annual attendance at the National Student Council Conference

  • Advisor training at our state events

  • Membership networking opportunities


Each year we present a number of awards to honor our members, including the NMASC Advisor of the Year Award (in both high and middle levels), NMASC Student Council of the Year Award and the Project of the Year Award.

Our governing body is the NMASC Executive Board, elected by member schools, and consists of an Executive Director, four adult board members, and four student officers..


NMASC is an organization for student leaders that encourages the practice of the democratic process, citizenship, and service while fostering an exchange of ideas and problem solving strategies for New Mexico's schools.

We believe…

  • promotion of unity while respecting diversity of individuals

  • encouraging total involvement and participation through attendance in leadership training

  • supporting the ideals of service within communities in student councils around New Mexico

  • the practice of the democratic process preserves the equal voices of students and advisors by election  of executive board members

  • being part of NMASC, students and advisors, will have opportunities to network with a wide variety of organizations, businesses, and people from across the state and nation
