February 28 - The Lending World in Crisis-What Clients Need Their Appraisers to Know Today - Fairfax, VA Click here for details.
To better serve the AIDC community, we would like to add a "Favorite Bookmarks" section to the AIDC website. We're looking for any and all sources of information an appraiser might need to get the job done. If you would like to help out, please send the address of the websites you find most useful to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
The Lending World in Crisis-What Clients Need Their Appraisers to Know Today - Feburary 28
This revised seminar, previously released in 2005, titled What Clients Want Their Appraiser’s to Know, has been updated to reflect dramatic changes in the real estate market. According to clients, commercial appraisers are making the same error – providing little or no critical analysis – which in these times is even more critical now. Legislation will give appraisers more independence than ever before, but if the work product does not improve, many appraisers will find their appraisal volumes declining. Keep your clients satisfied and your assignments growing by attending this important educational program!

Each year, AIDC is required to create a Chapter Nominating Committee to produce a slate of officers, directors and regional representatives for the following year. The committee consists of an ex officio member, two (2) appointed members and two (2) members elected by the Chapter membership. The two (2) elected members of the Chapter Nominating Committee shall be elected by the Chapter membership at the first regular membership meeting in each year. Elected members of the Chapter Nominating Committee serve a one (1) year term and shall not be eligible to serve consecutive terms on the Chapter Nominating Committee.
If you are interested in serving on the Chapter Nominating Committee, please let us know by sending us an email (email@example.com) or calling 301-924-1020.
The Candidate for Designation Program has been passed by the Board of Directors and takes effect Jan. 1, 2013. Current Associate members will soon have the opportunity to choose whether they wish to become Candidates for Designation or Affiliates, as newly defined. Notices regarding amendments to the AI Regulations, consistent with the new Bylaws, will be forthcoming.
AMC legislation has been introduced in the current legislative session of the Virginia House of Delegates. AIDC has been working with other AI Chapters in Virginia, the Virginia Association of Realtors (VAR) and the Virginia Association of Real Estate Appraiser Professionals (VaCap) in crafting this bill. Please click here to see the latest revised version of the AMC bill.
The bill passed in committee on 2/8/12, which means it will be heading to the floor soon. The bill will go to the House of Delegates first, and then should cross over to the Senate next week on "crossover" day which is 2/15/12. If you have any questions or comments relating to this bill please e-mail Don Boucher at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 202-744-3246
