Benefits of Membership

The Maine Association for Community Service Providers (MACSP) is an association of organizations that provide supports and services to children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 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 they serve.

We work with key stakeholders and decision-makers including lawmakers and state agency staff to promote policies, secure funding, and foster collaborative partnerships to support the delivery of high-quality services to Maine people. Our membership represents more than seventy organizations providing comprehensive services in all sixteen Maine counties.

Our mission is to support this vision and our membership via networking, training, education, and advocacy with the public and at 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. We also help to connect community service providers with children and adults with developmental disabilities using their services.

Types of Membership

Full Membership. Full Membership may be granted to a private agency or an individual who provides residential service and/or hourly supports to persons with intellectual or other related disabilities. The agency or service must be licensed, certified, or approved by state, county, or local government agencies where such licensure, certification, or approval is required. Agencies and service providers must confirm their willingness to adhere to the MACSP Code of Ethics. Agencies and service providers must maintain their membership eligibility through the payment of annual dues. Agencies and service providers that have had their privilege to provide services to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities revoked by a governmental licensing or certification agency will also lose their eligibility for Full Membership in MACSP.

Associate Membership. Associate Membership may be granted to groups or individuals, non-profit or corporate, who are engaged in activities that relate to the objectives of MACSP and who are not eligible for Full Membership. Associate Members shall be ineligible to hold office or vote in the affairs of MACSP. Associate Members may attend all general membership meetings, committee meetings, annual business meetings and conventions and at the member rate.

MACSP Membership Dues

Our membership year runs from July 1 to June 30.

Dues for each agency are based on the total of an agency’s revenue for services provided in Maine for intellectual and other developmental disabilities and autism (i.e. “Developmental Services”). The source of the information should be the results of the most recent audited financial statements of the agency.

The following are Sections under the MaineCare Benefits Manual which are presumptively services provided to individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities: Section 13, Section 19, Section 20, Section 21, Section 28, Section 29, Section 50, Section 97-Appendix F.

If you also provide services for individuals outside of Developmental Disabilities Services, the revenue from those services should not be included in your dues calculation.
