Meteer Re-Elected to Township Supervisors Association's Executive Committee
Members of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors have re-elected Marvin Meteer, chairman of the board of supervisors for Wyalusing Township, Bradford County, to a second three-year term on the association’s Executive Committee, effective April 20, 2011.
The election took place during PSATS’s 89th Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show, held April 17 to 20 in Hershey. This is the largest municipal event of its kind in the state, with close to 4,000 attendees.
The seven-member Executive Committee and the association’s five officers make up the 12-member Executive Board, which is responsible for managing the affairs of the state association. The board meets frequently throughout the year to oversee association business and plan new projects that will benefit member townships.
The Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors represents Pennsylvania’s 1,455 townships of the second class and for the past 90 years has been committed to preserving and strengthening township government and securing greater visibility and involvement for townships in the state and federal political arenas. Townships of the second class represent more residents—5.5 million Pennsylvanians—than any other type of political subdivision in the commonwealth.
Meteer previously served as a member of the association’s Publications-Public Relations, Resolutions-Legislation, and State Annual Conference Planning committees. He is currently a member of the association’s Grassroots Lobbying Network, which addresses legislative issues that affect every Pennsylvanian who lives in a township of the second class.
Meteer is president and past vice-president of the Bradford County Association of Township Officials. He also served as chair of its Nominations Committee and as a member of the Resolutions Committee. He is also a recipient of the group’s President’s Award and last year was named, along with his wife, Maxine, as Wyalusing Community’s Outstanding Citizens for 2010.
Meteer, owner of the Main Street Sign Company, is a member of the Bradford County Economic Development Advisory Board, president of the Wyalusing Industrial Development Corporation, and treasurer for the Eastern Bradford County Council of Governments. He is also a member of the Chesapeake Energy Bradford County Citizens Advisory Panel, the Greater Wyalusing Valley Chamber of Commerce, and the Wyalusing Valley Rainbow Club.
Other affiliations include lay leader and choir director for the Wyalusing United Methodist Church, as well as lay member, certified lay speaker, and member of the Council on Finance and Administration for the Wyoming Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Meteer was also the director and founding board member of the Wyalusing Area Ambulance Inc.
