Michigan Assessors Association

The Association furthers its goals through the following activities.


Education

Education is a primary goal of the Michigan Assessors Association.   Through partnerships with the Michigan State Tax Commission, our Association provides educational opportunities at four locations throughout the year.  Course offering consist of Michigan Assessors Association and State Tax Commission developed courses for individuals pursuing their assessor certification as well as continuing education courses that fulfill re-certification and continuing education requirements.

The Association also works closely with the State Tax Commission, International Association of Assessing Officers and other professional organizations to secure educational content to fulfill State Appraiser licensing requirements.

Legislation

The Michigan Assessors Association's Legislative Committee keeps members informed on pending and proposed legislation affecting property tax administration. The committee also recommends positions on pending legislation, meets with legislators and presents testimony to the House Tax Committee to offer insight and practical revisions and solutions regarding implementation of new laws.  The Association also employs a Legislative Agent who provides advice and guidance on the legislative process as well as facilitating meetings with Legislators and appropriate State Legislative Committees.

Publications

The Association publishes the award winning, monthly professional trade magazine, "The Michigan Assessor" in print and electronic format.  The publication provides members with current Association news, informative industry articles, State Tax Commission developments, Michigan Tax Tribunal, Court of Appeals and Supreme Court decisions and Affiliate organizations' news.  In addition, the Association publishes a monthly electronic newsletter of current Association news and events.  Members also receive the Association's electronic eAlert when critical events take place and member action is required or important developments are unfolding

Scholarships

Michigan Assessors Association members whose employers do not prove funding for education and who are financially burdened to self-fund educational opportunities. The funding for these scholarships is made available by the Executive Board of the Michigan Assessors Association and private donations to provide greater opportunities for members to attend educational courses and seminars. The funding is awarded to any MAA member who demonstrates a financial need, and intends to use the funds to complete an educational activity.

Member Representation

The Association is governed by and Executive Board consisting of four Executive Officers, eight District Representative and three appointed Board Members representing Michigan Townships, Equalization Directors and Subscribing Members (see district map at left).
