DISCLAIMER

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SANTA...

This is not the place to look, we are a social group of friends who for the most part are Santas or helpers.

Therefore M.A.P.S. offers no endorsement concerning member(s).

For anyone ever hiring a Santa or other, it is your responsibility to ask questions and make sure you have the best person for the job.

WELCOME

Our Mission

Michigan Association of Professional Santas (M.A.P.S.) mission is dedicated to providing a forum for Michigan Santas and their counterparts (Mrs. Clauses, elves, helpers and support staff) to network together, discuss various subjects pertaining to the portrayal of Santa Claus and becoming the best Santa Claus (or helpers) we possibly can be.

*************************************

What is a 'professional' Santa? This question was discussed by the Founding Fathers of MAPS before the web site appeared. It was agreed that anyone who does Santa for more than his family is a professional Santa and qualified to join MAPS.

Did you know we have a 'Member Ad' section where members can list things they want to sell or trade. It can be found in the drop down Tab at the top under Member Resources.
