MAAO Mission Statement
The mission of the Minnesota Association of Assessing Officers (MAAO) is to provide education and information to promote excellence in property appraisal and assessment administration through professional development with the highest ethical standards.
MAAO courses are comparable to college level courses. Participants should come to class prepared to participate in lectures, work problems and reviews, read all suggested materials and complete assigned homework.
Participants are required to complete a Registration Form and submit the appropriate fees prior to the start of a course as directed on the form. All fees include Minnesota sales tax as required.
Courses will be held at the location identified on the Registration Form.
Confirmation of registrations will be provided prior to the start of a course.
Lodging information will be included on each Registration Form, if you need any further assistance finding lodging please contact the MAAO Weeklong Course Coordinator.
Participants should be in attendance by 7:30 AM on the first day of a course. Sessions will generally be held from 8AM to 5:00PM daily Monday through Thursday with the final exam on Thursday afternoon unless otherwise stated on the Registration Form. Each course includes 30 hours of continuing education (or as indicated on the course posting) plus examination.
The required textbooks are listed on the Registration Form along with the fee including sales tax for purchase. They will be provided to the registrant Monday Morning. It is the responsibility of the registrant to purchase the textbook prior to the course to ensure a copy is available for the course.
The Minnesota Board of Assessors grants 30 hours of continuing education for attending MAAO sponsored weeklong courses unless otherwise stated on the Registration Form. Daily attendance will be verified during the week. Exams are required for licensure purposes. However, all courses also qualify for continuing education and no exam is required. Some courses may be approved for continuing education by the Minnesota Department of Commerce. Details are included on each Registration Form.
MAAO annually offers a limited number of scholarships to cover the registration fee. Please see the MAAO scholarship page on the website for information and applications.
