The Michigan Farmers Market Association’s (MIFMA) Market Manager Certificate Program (MMCP) is a voluntary program designed to encourage farmers market managers to pursue leadership skills and professional development in topics essential to market management. Market managers are recognized with a certificate upon completion of the full program which offers acknowledgment to market organizers and vendors that the market manager is a trained professional. In order to maintain that level of acknowledgment, certified market managers who earn 20 Professional Development Hours will be recertified.
Sessions hosted by partnering organizations can qualify for Professional Development Hours towards recertification if program hosts meet the following qualifications:
- Are a current MIFMA member
- Submit this application at least 30 days before the event
- Manage a sign-in sheet provided by MIFMA at the event
- Submit a copy of the sign-in sheet to MIFMA within 1 month after the event
Complete the following form to request that the program you are hosting earn Professional Development Hours for attendees.
