Special Announcement

Today began the transition from paper to electronic dues invoices for all MAP Local Units.
 
All MAP units were emailed their March dues invoices today to their unit email addresses. We will also mail a paper invoice for March dues, but this will be the final paper invoice you will receive.
 
We will be switched to completely electronic invoices for April's dues which will be mailed in the beginning of May. Thank you for your help.
This email stays with the local unit, and is different than your individual member account on the MAP website; even when new officers (president/vice president/shop steward, etc) are elected.
Please complete setting up your local unit email as soon as possible. Not doing so will result in units not receiving their invoices or paying dues on time which will affect services to the unit until rectified.

Important notice Regarding Dues:

To MAP Local Unit Presidents/Treasurers/Full Board Reps:

All MAP local units were assigned a direct email account through the MAP Webmail system (Example: localpba@maineassociationofpolice.com). This email is property of the local/MAP and will stay with the unit when new officers are elected.

All local units should have set up their accounts to begin receiving notices directly on or before January 1st, 2014.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR LOCAL PRESIDENT, SECRETARY TREASURER OR REP HAS SET UP AND ACTIVATED THEIR ADDRESS!

THIS ADDRESS IS DIFFERENT THAN YOUR INDIVIDUAL MEMBER ACCOUNT

Beginning in March we will discontinue mailing, and will begin emailing dues invoices to all the local units. To avoid interruptions in service due to unpaid dues, or not receiving important notices, it is extremely important that your association email be up and running. In an attempt to make sure that this transition goes smoothly, we will continue to mail dues invoice for the next 2 months (FEB/MARCH).

After March 31st, all invoices will be sent to your assigned local unit email account.

If you should have questions or need assistance setting up your email account, please contact or email the MAP office.

It is with deep sadness that the Maine Association of Police announces the death of Bill Troubh on November 8th, 2013.

Announcements

2014 MAP National Law Enforcement Memorial Trip Announcement

This year, the annual MAP sponsored trip to Washington DC for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial will be May 12th through the 15th, 2014. MAP is again helping to defray the cost of the hotel accommodations for our members.

Any MAP Member who is interested in attending this year’s memorial events MUST provide a $100.00 reservation fee no later than April 28th, 2014 to MAP Vice President Chris Todd at the South Portland Police Department. MAP has reserved a LIMITED number of hotel rooms and member availability is on a first come, first served basis. MAP will only be subsidizing the cost of the hotel and will not cover airfare, meals or local transportation. Some members have used online services such as Expedia to find flights but you need to book far in advance to ensure your own travel.

In the event that we have a large number of members interested in the trip, additional rooms may be purchased -- if available. This will possibly result in a higher per member cost above the original per member reservation fee of $100.00 as hotel rooms generally run $300.00 - $400.00 per night. IF YOU ARE PAYING YOUR DEPOSIT BY CHECK, PLEASE MAKE YOUR CHECK PAYABLE TO SOUTH PORTLAND PATROL ASSOCIATION.

We are expecting a higher than normal interest in this year’s trip, so please plan your interest accordingly.  After April 28th, if there are still spaces available, those vacancies will be opened to MAP retiree members first, and then to any interested individual outside of MAP.  PLEASE ONLY TAKE A SPACE IF YOU ARE COMMITTED TO GOING. IF YOUR RESERVATION FEE IS NOT RECEIVED BY THE APRIL 28TH DEADLINE, YOU WILL FORFIET YOUR SLOT. NO EXECPTIONS.

Bear in mind, the purpose of MAP sponsoring this trip is to honor and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defending the Thin Blue Line. All participants utilizing MAP’s subsidy will be expected to attend the Candlelight Vigil held during our stay in DC during memorial week. There are many opportunities to socialize, but don't forget the reason for this trip. Those who do not attend the candlelight vigil will be asked to reimburse MAP for their stay.

If you would like to know more about National Police Memorial Week, you can visit the National Law enforcement Officers Memorial Fund website at:

For more information or to reserve a spot, contact MAP VP Chris Todd at @ 799-9720 X7448, or at christo@southportland.org.
