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
