Membership renewals start in October; dues to increase slightly
IAAO membership renewals for 2023 start in October and at its July meeting, the IAAO Board of Directors approved an increase of membership dues by $15 for Regular and Associate members. This increase applies with the 2023 membership year and will be reflected in the upcoming renewal period. The board cited rising costs associated with the continued delivery of high-quality benefits for its members as the reason for the increase.
Exposure draft of USPAP available for comments; 2020-21 version extended for additional year
The Third Exposure Draft of proposed changes to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) is now available for review and comment. The Appraisal Standards Board is accepting public comments until Sept. 24. To submit a comment, click here. The Appraisal Foundation’s Appraisal Standards Board (ASB) recently announced that the current edition, 2020-2021 USPAP, will now be effective until December 31, 2023. This extension is in addition to a previous one-year extension of USPAP issued by the Appraisal Standards Board in February 2021.
“As USPAP matures, revisions such as this will take more time to conduct the requisite research to ensure changes continue to uphold the public trust,” said ASB Chair Michelle Czekalski Bradley. ASB is working with the preeminent fair housing law firm Relman Colfax to develop the proposed changes to the ETHICS RULE in the Third Exposure. Future editions of USPAP will have beginning effective dates, but no end dates to give the ASB greater flexibility to thoroughly examine proposed changes and respond in a timely manner to a changing marketplace.
