IAAO to work to expand opportunities for minorities

In wake of recent protests in the United States and around the globe, as President, I have asked the Board of Directors and our Executive Director to launch a series of activities to recruit black and minority candidates into the assessment and tax policy profession in order to make the assessment industry more reflective of our communities. In addition, IAAO will work to engage and welcome those candidates into the ranks of IAAO, foster their development into IAAO designated assessment professionals, provide expanded volunteer positions for previously underrepresented populations in the IAAO, and finally, provide new pathways to leadership positions in IAAO, both in our volunteer and professional staff ranks. For more details, please view the following video message.

Appraisal Foundation extends response date for job analysis study

The Appraisal Foundation’s Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) and PSI Services LLC has extended the response date until the end of July for responses to a national job analysis study of real estate appraisal professionals. The study will help update the National Uniform Licensing and Certification Examinations used across the U.S. to help ensure real estate appraisal professionals meet acceptable standards for competent practice. The purpose of the job analysis is to identify tasks and competencies reflective of the real estate appraiser job role. There are three parts of the survey: Part I covers background information, Part II covers professional activities (tasks), and Part III reviews a list of knowledge areas. The survey will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete and participants do not have to complete the survey in one sitting. You may exit the survey and return to complete later. However, you must start and finish the survey from the same device.  The deadline to complete is July 31. If you have any questions, contact aramirez@psionline.com. The study is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2020AQBJobAnalysis.
