MAA President's Message

December Message

It has been a great year for me to serve as your President. I want to thank all the people who volunteered their time, talent and energy this year to making this organization thrive in it’s 60th year. This includes board members, committee members, committee chairs who took time and energy out of their day to work to improve this profession. Over a thousand hours of volunteer work have gone into this association this year! This is what makes this organization thrive. Thank you!

A special thank you to Linda Stevenson and Scott Engerson who both asked me to join this board in 2012. I have been made better for just knowing the two of you. Participating in this organization has helped my career and my professional development. Thank you!

Thank you to my family who has had to deal with my time away from them. Thank you for your constant support, strength and always reminding me to enjoy the journey. If you have not attended a committee meeting or joined an initiative, then I want to invite you now to find a way that you can strengthen this organization for the next 60 years. Now is the time. We must continue to develop relevant education and resources to continue the professional development that is so important to our members. I look forward to working with 2020 President John Dahlquist as we start the next 60 years of MAA!

My wish is for you to enjoy a safe and joyful holiday season.

Paula Jastifer, President

Michigan Assessors Association

MAA Webmaster 0 526 Article rating: 5.0
In 2018, there was a strong initiative in the legislature to drastically change the way Assessment Administration was done in the State of Michigan.

This initiative seem to come from sources who were not familiar with the profession and involved input from very few stakeholders. Ruth Scott became the leader of many assessing and property tax professionals, along with the Legislative Committee, who worked hard to educate and inform the legislators on the issues of the time and did so with great professionalism.

MAA Subscribing Member Award Renamed the "David M. Heinowski" Award

Michigan Assessors Association

MAA Webmaster 0 419 Article rating: No rating

During the 1970’s, the Michigan Assessors Association began recognizing outstanding members of the Association with the presentation of the Most Valuable Member Award. Later, in the mid 1980’s, the Association established an award program to recognize members who have made outstanding contributions to the Association and property tax profession in other areas. It was at that time that prominent or distinguished members of our Association were named to individual awards, in some instances, honorarily.
