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.

Spring Education Session Cancelled


It is obvious at this time that the Coronavirus Pandemic is going to impact our lives for the next several months.  We are sorry to say that our Spring School scheduled for the week of April 27 through May 1, 2020 in Grand Rapids is canceled.

The Wisner Center facility where the classes were to be offered is closed through April 11 at this time with the possibility of extensions if the virus continues to be impacting our citizens’ health.  The CDC made the recommendation that groups be limited to ten individuals on March 16---and that is for an indefinite period of time.  Many government units are limiting their employees’ travel.  With the welfare of our member students and instructors in the forefront of our thoughts, the decision has been made to cancel the school.

Please look for opportunities for education at the Summer School (Howell July 27-31), our Annual Conference (Shanty Creek August 9-12), and Fall School (Boyne Highlands October 5-9).  As many of the spring classes as possible will be included in one of the above curricula.  It is also possible that additional opportunities may present themselves after the health concerns gripping our nation have been abated.  Watch the Michigan Assessor magazine and website for further information.

Plan to join us for your 2020 continuing education and certification classes later this year!  And please stay healthy!
