The annual dues package for an Associate Membership shall be $225.00. National dues and other affiliates are optional recommendations. MAAE will pay the student dues for any student who wants to be a member. Student dues are $15.00 (which are intended for undergraduates and interns).

MAAE Membership Data

  • MAAE Years of Service Proposal (Accepted by MAAE Board on April 17, 2009):
    • Description: MAAE Years of Service is a means to recognize members for their years of service in the MAAE as members. Recognition pins are given for 1st year, 5th year, and every 5 years following.
    • Maintained By: MAAE Secretary
    • Years of Service Calculation:
      The calculation of the Years of Service should be done in the following manner:
      • MAAE membership for the current year runs from May 1st with registration at Summer PDI and dues submission by January 1st to NAAE
      • Year of Service = should be defined as a completion of 1 year on the NAAE roster and therefore members should be recognized at the Summer PDI following the completion of that year and subsequently at the annual MAAE banquet following completion of that year.
    • Years of Service Record Keeping:
      The record keeping for Years of Service will show the year under "Dues History" which indicates that the member paid dues for that year therefore, "08-09" indicates that the member paid their dues between May 1, 2008 and December 1, 2008.
    • Years of Service Recognition:
      Formal Recognition should always be given at the annual MAAE Banquet. Informal recognition is also given at the 0-9 and 10-20-30 meetings held during the Summer PDI conference.
  • Please send corrected information to MAAE Secretary
