COVID-19 Considerations: MAAO is actively monitoring information from Governor Walz and the MN Department
of Health 
and is making ongoing decisions about education based on the most current information available. In
regards to
in-person offerings for 2021, MAAO has worked with each event venue to ensure proper social distancing,
adherence to the Governor’s orders of not 
exceeding 25% meeting room capacity for events, and COVID-19 catering
accommodations. Additionally, sanitizing stations will be 
provided, face masks will be required at all times, no-contact
forehead temperatures will be taken at the beginning of each day, and there will be no passing of paperwork
throughout the class. We have talked in detail with the event venue and feel confident that every reasonable
precaution is being taken for attendees' health and safety.

Each educational offering is subject to cancellation if mandated by the Governor or due to a change in Covid
conditions. A 100% refund will be processed for any registrant due to a Covid-related cancellation. Attendance at
any course is at the risk of the employer and attendee. MAAO will not be held liable.

MAAO Instructor Opportunities

The MAAO Education Steering Committee is always looking for assessors interested in instructing or co-instructing MAAO courses. If you are interested in this rewarding challenge, you should first plan on attending part or the entire course you are interested in instructing this year. Upon being selected as an instructor trainee by the committee you will be provided the course materials, be asked to instruct a portion of the course this year, be reimbursed for your expenses and be provided a stipend. Approved instructor trainees would then be involved in teaching the course at its next offering. 

If this opportunity interests you, please review the course offerings listed above and see if this year's courses work for your schedule. If so, contact Emily Squyres, Education Coordinator, to discuss your plan. She can be contacted at [email protected]. The MAAO courses are only as good as the instructors and we need to continue these excellent educational offerings to provide the best training possible to Minnesota assessors. Thank you for your consideration!
