For IAAO Region 3


Tax Administrator, Durham County, North Carolina

My name is Dwane Brinson, and I am running for Region 3 on the IAAO Board of Directors.

I have nearly 22 years of service in property tax assessment and administration, including 15 years as the appointed Tax Administrator.

I have been a member of IAAO since 2004 and have earned the CAE, RES, and AAS designations. Last year my jurisdiction earned the Certificate of Excellence in Assessment Administration (CEAA), and I was graciously selected as recipient of the John C. Donehoo Award.

Considering my desire to help others grow, I continue to serve as a Professional Designation Advisor and encourage others to pursue a designation. I also am a Certified IAAO Instructor, which allows me to expand my reach to help others develop professionally. Being an active member on numerous committees, I thoroughly enjoy helping lead change and policy decisions. Committees served on include: IAAO Scholarship Committee, Professional Designation Subcommittee, and Professional Development Committee. I also have served as a presenter at multiple IAAO annual conferences.

Every single day I strive to impact others. On the Board of Directors, I would look forward to helping other jurisdictions become more involved with IAAO, understand the value of an IAAO membership, and help ensure the content provided by IAAO is relevant and an excellent value.

I hold a B.S. in from the University of Mount Olive, an MBA from Campbell University, and an MPA from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. I would appreciate your vote.
