Memorial Scholarship Funds

The purpose of these two funds is to assist Michigan Assessors Association (MAA) members whose employers provide no 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.

About MAA Virtual Learning Center

Please be sure you have whitelisted "newsletter@maa-usa.org" in your email client so you will receive webinar updates and "Course Completion Certificates". (Also, don't forget to complete the registration process for each webinar purchased).

All MAA Webinars are delivered via ZOOM

We use the Zoom Webinar application to present our webinars.  Attendee should download and install the ZOOM application on the device they intend to use to participate in the webinar.

However, participants who are unable to install Zoom can join a meeting or webinar using the Zoom web client on their desktop web browser.  When joining the webinar, the participant can click on "Join from your browser". They will be prompted to enter their name and then be able to join the webinar.  A class moderator will be available 30 minute prior to the start of the webinar to assist attendees with any communication difficulties once they have joined a meeting.  However, moderators will not  interrupt the class after it begins to assist someone logging in late.

Webinar Text Materials

After submitting payment, attendees will be re-directed to the ZOOM registration page where they must complete the registration process to receive a unique webinar link to join the webinar.  Included with the webinar link will be a link to download your text.  Attendees are responsible for downloading their webinar text material.  There IS NO option to receive a hard copy of webinar text material.

Continuing Education Credit

The State Tax Commission, at their meeting on August 18, 2020, adopted a policy regarding virtual education requirements. This policy requires that ALL students have two-way video communication capabilities for attendance in virtual learning webinars.  Therefore, you MUST have a video camera on the device that you will attend the webinar from so that we can see you.  If you do not have two-way video capability, you may still attend the webinar but, you WILL NOT receive continuing education credit.

Each attendee must to submit a completed short “quiz” at the conclusion of the webinar comprised of key points and an authentication code provided during the webinar.  After successful submission the quiz, the attendee will receive a certificate which may be used to register CE credit on the State Tax Commission's CERTS application.  Note that each attendee must use the unique webinar join link assigned to them.  Due to attendance logging, attendees cannot share their device or login link or share computers to attend these webinars.

LARA Credit

Several classes, now in the planning stage, will be submitted to LARA for continuing education credit for our licensed appraisers.  Those will be flagged for your information if approved
