Community Papers of Michigan Member Program


Community Papers of Michigan Partners with Michigan State Auctioneer’s Association

The Michigan State Auctioneer’s Association, Board of Directors approved a partnership with Community Papers of Michigan and their state-wide classified network, Michigan MegaMarket, during MAA’s Annual Conference Jan. 22-24 in Lansing, MI.

This partnership will allow MAA Members to purchase advertising in CPM’s state-wide classified network at a discount. CPM will also contribute a portion of each paid classified ad to MAA to assist them in continuing their great work and benefits to their vast membership.

CPM Executive Director, Jack Guza stated, “This is truly a win-win situation for both associations and our memberships. First and foremost, the sales will provide auctioneers throughout the state a way to showcase their auctions and websites to over 1.6 million households throughout Michigan within our members’ quality home-delivered highly localized newspapers and shopping guides easily and cost effectively.”

Guza continued, “For MAA members, the ability to reach across the state and advertise upcoming auctions and their websites in dozens of quality publications, will bring additional awareness and increased participation in their auctions which will benefit them and their clients greatly.”

MAA President, Dan Brodie commented, “We are pleased to announce the new member benefit program with Community Papers of Michigan. With the great variety of advertising options available, we believe the need to notify our buying public at home may make the big difference in having a successful auction. We are always looking for great value added benefits for MAA Auctioneers and we believe this will be a good economical method to help our members service better serve their clients.”

MAA serves hundreds of auctioneers throughout the state.
