Course: Valuation of Conservation Easements - - - Recently Updated Version
14 - 17
Location: Lafayette Library and Learning Center, Lafayette

Instructor: Nick Tillema, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS, AI-RRS

Valuation of Conservation Easements is an intense, advanced-level educational endeavor dealing with one of the most controversial topics in the realm of valuation.

This course is designed for the general certified appraiser who understands the methodology in the approaches to value and is ready to embark on understanding the intricacies involved in one of the most misunderstood and difficult types of appraisals.

Over 4 days, this intensive program will familiarize participants with conservation easement valuations in a variety of situations, including conventional appraisals, appraisals that are required to comply with the Uniform Appraisal Standards of Federal Land Acquisitions, and appraisals involving non-cash charitable contributions that are required to comply with IRS standards. Learning objectives will be accomplished through a series of lectures, in-class discussions, problem solving, homework assignments, and case-law analysis.

This course is in the Valuation of Conservation Easements Professional Development Program. For more information, click here.

Workshop, Chapter Business Meeting & Networking Social: "Healthy is the NEW High-Performance for Homes and Buildings"
Location: Four Points by Sheraton, Plesanton

Workshop: Healthy is the NEW High-Performance for Homes and Buildings

The recent wildfires, devastating to their specific areas, also created significant health concerns hundreds of miles beyond the burn area and reminded us how important air quality is to our health and well-being.  Air quality was in the unhealthy range for much of the Bay Area for several weeks and staying indoors did little to address the problem without specific high-performance air handling equipment.  And while air quality may be the most recent issue we’ve faced, water quality is a looming problem particularly in some parts of the country. 

What if our homes and buildings were designed to optimize the interior environment?  What if being inside meant the air and water were within healthy levels, the lighting was set to encourage productivity and sleep patterns, and the noise levels – even in open office plans – was controlled?  Enter the latest focus in high-performance homes and buildings:  creating an interior environment that is physically and psychologically healthy, and one that maximizes productivity. 

Join us for this 2-hour workshop and learn:

  • What is the effect on demand for both residential and commercial homes and buildings?
  • What are the new features of “healthy” buildings?
  • How do the new rating systems, WELL and Fitwel, work?
  • How do I analyze the value impact?
