Maine Association for Community Service Providers:
The Maine Association for Community Service Providers (MACSP) is an association of organizations which provide supports and services to children and adults with developmental disabilities. We work with many bureaus, offices, and departments of state government to deliver high quality services to Maine people. Our membership currently consists of approximately seventy organizations operating in all sixteen counties of Maine providing comprehensive services across the state.
MACSP’s vision is that each member organization will have the resources and support they need to provide premier and quality services to every person with disabilities that they serve. Our mission is to support this vision and our membership via networking, training, education, and advocacy with the public and all levels of government. As a member, you will have access to communications within the MACSP membership and the state, leadership on regional and service issues through Board and active committee participation, sponsored trainings, special rates for local and national related business and memberships, and advocacy support on service driven issues.
Our membership year runs from July 1 to June 30. Dues for each agency are based on the total of an agency’s budget that is paid for services provided in Maine for intellectual and other developmental disabilities and autism (i.e. “Developmental Services”). If you also provide services for individuals outside of Developmental Services eligibility, the revenue from those services should not be included in your dues calculation. A chart and corresponding dues can be found on the below membership application.
In addition to Full Membership, we also offer Associate Organizational and Associate Personal Memberships with discounted rates for organizations and people engaged in activities which relate to the objectives of MACSP and who are not organizations which directly provide supports and services to individuals with developmental disabilities. Associate Members may attend all general membership meetings, annual business meetings and conventions and also attend MACSP sponsored education programs at the Full Member rate. More on the types of membership can be found on the below membership application.
If you have any questions or thoughts about MACSP or the application, please do not hesitate to contact our Executive Director, Lydia Dawson, at Lydia.Dawson@meacsp.org or by phone at (207) 623-5005.
