State/Local Appraisal Groups

Real Estate Appraisal Structures provide a vehicle for packaging and delivering products and services to appraisers at the state and local Association level. Structures that exist at this level include: Task Forces, Subcommittees/Committees and State Sections.

Reasons to form an Appraisal Group:

A. To provide a home for appraisal members
B. To create a professional & profitable environment for its members by providing quality continuing education, forums for networking, newsletters containing timely & pertinent information, and marketing techniques to enhance member success
C. To encourage specialization and increased recognition of professional designations (RAA & GAA)
D. To enhance membership value, improve communication and increase involvement of appraisal members through targeted member services
E. To promote standards of competent and ethical practice in real estate appraisal
F. To recruit and retain appraisers as REALTORS®
G. To institute peer recognition programs
H. To identify and develop services which meet the unique needs of the appraisal practitioner and support them in an increasingly competitive market
