These scholarships are awarded based on need to MAAO members and applications are available on the MAAO website.

  • Annual Conference: The MAAO hosts a Fall Conference annually, traditionally in September. Our Association supports learning opportunities for our peers and the Fall Conference is the ideal place to attend training workshops and get credits toward becoming a certified assessor and maintaining this status. The Fall Conference is typically a 3-day event, with the opportunity to attend all or part of the conference to experience some high-caliber training, network with peers, learn about the latest events in the profession, and visit with vendors who will be displaying the latest technology and products. We encourage members and non-members to attend this important annual event.
