At the time of election, a Committee member will be a registered voter as defined in the City Charter and must take an oath of office as required by law.
Each new member of the Committee will present official certification to the Committee Executive Secretary of having sworn the oath before an officer duly qualified to administer oaths prior to beginning his or her official duties as a Committee member. By law, newly qualified Committee members receive from the City Clerk and sign a receipt for a copy of the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law governing the conduct of Committee meetings in general and executive sessions in particular.
