MAA President's Message

May/June Message

As I sit here writing this message it’s the first 70-degree day of the year; while yesterday I woke up to it snowing.  For many of us the change of seasons means it’s time to roll over our databases and start our fieldwork.  For the Conference Committee it means finalizing plans for the Annual Conference.

This year marks the 50th Annual Conference and your Conference Committee is hard at work to make this a fun filled and educational Conference.  Our goal is to have registration out to the membership by the middle of May.  This year the Conference will be held at Shanty Creek Resort on August 14 through 17.

One of the mainstays of every conference is the Awards Breakfast.  I would like to encourage you to nominate your fellow assessors for an award.

Surprisingly, the Awards Committee struggles every year to receive nominations.  So let your voice be heard and take part in your organization by making a nomination.  Nominations can be made for the following areas:

  • Most Valuable Member Award (Ernest “Ernie” Beren Award)
  • Literary Award (Frank Moss Award)
  • Education Award (David Bone Award)
  • Michigan Property Tax Achievement Award
  • Distinguished Assessment Jurisdiction Award
  • Subscribing Member Award (David M. Heinowski Award)

For a full description of each award and past recipients please refer to the “Awards” section of the MAA Website.

In other news, did you know the MAA is now offering a virtual option to attend our monthly meetings?  If you haven’t attended any of our meetings, I would encourage you to do so.  While we would certainly like to see you in person, the virtual option may be more appealing to you.  Links to the meetings and a meeting schedule can be found on the Home Page of our website.

Attending meetings is not only a way to get involved to your organization but also a way to learn what is going on in the many different areas of assessment administration, such as the STC and legislation that is being introduced.  Engagement with the MAA and any local assessing organizations leads to, not only the success of the organization and our profession, but also the success of you as an assessment professional!

Best regards,
Tony Meyaard, President
