President’s Message December 2012

Most chapter presidents wonder what big challenges will arrive during their term to surprise them.

And indeed, this has been a large part of activity on both National and our chapter levels. There has been no shortage of e-mail blasts, notifications and reminders over this year about the Candidate for Designation and Advisor programs. And while these notifications may seem overwhelming at times, please keep in mind that in order to make this switch to a business model that puts emphasis on the designation from the Appraisal Institute (both in helping those that want to achieve designation and those that have a designation already to be recognized as the top in the appraisal field), constant communication is needed.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or any of our Board members for clarification.  Read More…
