Individuals who are not members of a MAFA-affiliated guild, and interested commercial enterprises, institutions, organizations, and schools are invited to become “associate” members to show their support for MAFA’s goals. This membership also entitles individuals to register for MAFA conferences at the same time and same price as MAFA guild members.

Associate members may attend Representative Assemblies, but are not entitled to a vote.

May 2, 2020
Associates, the MAFA board is studying the impact of COVID-19 on our members, and wants to review our dues structure for 2020-2022 before taking any renewals.  We expect to extend the October 1st renewal due date to accommodate this review, and the board will make a recommendation for a vote at our Fall Reps meeting.  We will send renewal notices after we have that resolved.

If you have any questions, or if you are a new associate who wants to join MAFA, please don’t hesitate to email me at
Margaret Briggs, MAFA Membership Chair
