What's New!

2018 Election Information

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. 

New Assessment Tools

IAAO has unveiled the new Compensation Estimator as a quick and easy comparative analysis tool for IAAO members. The tool’s data is based on the findings of the IAAO Assessment Industry Compensation Survey conducted by Readex Research and can be a helpful guide for your strategic planning and professional development efforts. Estimated results are based upon approximately 3,000 responses to the survey that included compensation information. Members can check out the tool at www.iaao.org/estimator.

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.

New Big-Box Course

As part of its Critical Issues Series IAAO has developed a Commercial Big-Box Retail online course ito explain what big-box retail (BBR) properties are, why BBR valuation is important in today's world, and why it is challenging.  The 2 hour CE course, based on the "Commercial Big-Box Retail: A Guide to Market-Based Valuation" paper published by the Special Committee on Big Box Valuation, identifies the key issues involved in BBR valuation and covers the concept of real property rights and definitions of value.

Assessment Brochure

To assist members in providing information about the assessment process, IAAO has developed a public information brochure, Understanding Your Assessment, explaining how the value of property is estimated and what causes it to change. Copies of the brochure are available to purchase online in quantities of 50 at $17 per each 50. For a free sample of this brochure, please send your mailing address to Pamela Meyers (meyers@iaao.org) with UYA Sample in the subject line. A sample brochure will be mailed to you.

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.
