IAAO Launches New Online Community!

IAAO has launched a new community tool to assist members in interacting with other members in the industry. The new community platform, called IAAO Connect, will replace AssessorNet, and is a modern tool to allow members to connect and learn. IAAO Connect Communities will be your resource to ask questions you want answered by your industry peers in the form of a new discussion post. It will also be your chance to share your knowledge by helping others with their questions, providing your opinion, or even sharing digital resources in the community’s online library. Check out the IAAO Connect informational page and then login.

The IAAO Executive Board has approved the exposure for membership comment of the revised Bylaws that combines the current Constitution and Bylaws. Members may download the draft version of the document and may submit comments on the proposed document via  comments@iaao.org. In addition to the bylaws, the Governance Committee has submitted a revised Code of Ethics for review. 

Results of GIS Technology Survey Available

Succession Planning Toolkit

IAAO has created a Succession Planning Toolkit to serve as a succession planning guide specifically for valuation agencies. We created the Toolkit to help our members incorporate leadership development within their strategic planning efforts since most offices are facing a large number of employees retiring in the near future and will need to cultivate our next generation of assessment industry leaders. The toolkit is available to download at www.iaao.org/successionplanning.

Find the resources you need in the library

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 new IAAO Research Exchange is also now available. The Research Exchange is the central repository for research papers and journal articles relevant to the property tax assessment and administration community.

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.
