pleased to annually offer full or partial

Seminar, traditionally held in September.
These scholarships are awarded based on
need to MAAO members and applications

- 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.
