What's New!

The IAAO Executive Board recently completed a review of the Association's organizational structure and several changes to the committee structure are being implemented in 2018 to benefit members and offer additional opportunities. President Randy Ripperger recorded a message explaining the results of the Executive Board's review and members are encouraged to watch. People interested in volunteering should fill out the volunteer form.

IAAO has released two new videos, the first on "Geographic Weighted Regression in Automated Valuation Models" with Paul Bidanset of the IAAO Research Subcommittee reviewing a chapter he wrote on Geographic Weighted Regression for Advances in Automated Valuation Modeling: AVM after the Non-Agency Mortgage Crisis by Maurizio d'Amato and Tom Kauko. The video is available on the IAAO website and the book is available to be checked out as an eBook from the IAAO Library

The newest video is the first of a new plain language video series from the Research Sub-committee working to assist members in the greater understanding of assessment terms and demonstrating their practical applications within everyday operations. The video has Paul Bidanset presenting "Using Excel to Calculate PRB" (Price Related Bias). It is a step-by step video demonstrating one of the commonly used statistical tests to assist in assessment performance measurement.

IAAO released the Big-Box Retail Store Valuation Subject Guide to help assessors become familiar with this new trend and to understand the valuation methods open to them, and IAAO is looking for assistance in developing a GIS for Assessment Professionals book.

The guide on intangibles developed by the IAAO Special Committee on Intangibles is now available for download. See the Technical Standards page for more on Understanding Intangible Assets and Real Estate: A Guide for Real Property Valuation Professionals.

Information for members interested in running for the IAAO Executive Board has been posted. Information must be submitted by July 1 for the elections, which will take place in November.

Looking for an IAAO resource? Find all of our internationally recognized publications, standards, and periodicals here. Members have full access to the IAAO Library as well as AssessorNet, our member networking tool.

The library recently released two new subject guides. The Sharing Economy Subject Guide provides links to articles, reports and websites with information on this new part of the economy. On landfills, there are two different ways to look at the valuation of landfills and the subject guide provides sources on both the appraisal of the landfill itself and also the impact on the surrounding properties.
