On-line Registration

With on-line registration, participants can use a credit card or check to pay for their course.  On-line registration ensures that you are registered and guaranteed a seat in the class.
* We accept all major credit cards.

MAA Members receive a significant savings in education and conference costs.  If you are not currently an MAA Member, consider joining now, before you register for a class, and save some money.  The cost of a one-year membership is only $90.00 and that's $35.00 less than the additional fee to register as a non-member.

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.

Continuing Education


Although MAA had hoped for major improvements in Michigan’s health by summer, it is now becoming abundantly clear that educational opportunities must again be reconsidered.  All MAA schools---spring, summer and fall---are cancelled.  Notice already was given that the Conference at Shanty Creek in August would not be held.  

Your MAA leadership is in the process of evaluating the best way to offer our members continuing education to enable them to not only meet their certification requirements, but also enhance their skills for the preparation of 2021 assessment rolls.  Our goal is that by September remote learning opportunities will be available for our members to register and participate in live sessions allowing for questions and discussions among attendees.  

Please look for announcements of these opportunities for education in the Michigan Assessor magazine and this website along with registration information.  Please be certain that your membership is current so you do not miss these opportunities.

Plan to join us for your 2020 continuing education classes!  And please stay healthy!
