Michigan Association of Professional Santas

Our Mission

Michigan Association of Professional Santas (M.A.P.S.) 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.

When does a Santa stop learning?

  Never - in M.A.P.S. we learn from each other, here on the website and when we meet at a scheduled event. We encourage all members to attend a Santa School, go to Santa Conventions, keep learning, learning, and learning.
