The Northern California Chapter is open for business! Our Chapter is comprised of appraisal professionals you know and trust. Education is the core service we provide, and we're in the process of adapting our education to virtual programs to meet Stay in Place (SIP) requirements.
We look forward to and will continue to provide the “live” high-quality education that the appraisal community has depended upon for nearly 100 years once these regulations are lifted and it is safe for everyone to gather in person again.
