MAA President's Message

May Message

How do you standout?  This is a common interview question employers ask.  What makes you better than the other candidates?  It is not enough that I perform the duties that I am paid for and perform them to the highest of standards.  That is the expectation.  In order to differentiate yourself from the average, you must go above and beyond what is expected.  One of the best and easiest ways to stand out is to get involved with your professional organization.

The benefits of joining a professional organization are many: networking, professional development, education, periodicals, seminars, conferences, information and support.  Getting involved with the organization on a more active level, such as joining a committee, puts you in touch with other like-minded professionals.  You find that you gain knowledge, experience and personal growth in the process.  The time and energy spent on this work expands your network, resources and makes you stand out from the average crowd.  You benefit from this experience and the organization benefits from having many perspectives.  If you have not engaged with the Michigan Assessors Association on a committee yet, please contact me so we can discuss the best fit for you. or 616-456-4585. An organization is only as good as its members make it.

MAA Schools for this year will be held May 6-10 in Novi, July 29-August 2 in Grand Rapids and September 30-October 4 at Boyne Highlands Resort.  Plan to attend as new courses are being developed to keep up with the profession’s ever-changing needs!

And don’t forget to mark your calendar for August 11-14, 2019.  These are the dates of the Annual Conference to be held at Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville, Michigan.  The education, networking and great company at the Michigan Assessors Association Conference provides each one of us the opportunity for professional development.

The Mission Statement is intended to be explain MAA's purpose and direction, while the Vision Statement focuses on our goals and aspirations as an organization. Both are designed to be uplifting, inspiring and timeless - even if the organization changes its strategy, the vision will often stay the same. These statements will be incorporated as part of our Board meeting agendas as well as posted on the website to keep them in the forefront.
