IAAO has provided me many opportunities for personal and professional growth over my 23 years of membership from appraisal education to involvement in my local chapter to serving as a committee chair at the association level. IAAO membership and the service opportunities it has provided me have been very rewarding. It would be my honor to give back to the association through an enhanced level of service by serving on the Executive Board.

I would appreciate your vote in November.
