IAAO Board of Directors, Region 2

Ginny Whipple, AAS

Bartholomew County Assessor
Columbus, Indiana

IAAO has always been a passion of mine. From the time I became a member in 1994, upon obtaining my Assessment Administration Designation in 2002 to becoming a Senior Instructor, I have benefited from IAAO in many, many ways. The experience of sitting on the Board of Directors from 2017 until 2019 helped me understand the complex organization and interactions that make up IAAO.

I believe that experience and dedication make me the candidate of choice for Region 2 in the 2023 election. We face challenges such as selecting a new Executive Director and staying on schedule with updating our educational offerings. I believe that by working as a team and understanding the desires of the membership, we can make the best decisions necessary to facilitate a strong IAAO for the future.

I am the Chair of the BoK Standards Integration Task Force and have been on various committees working for IAAO’s success since the early 2000s.

I was instrumental in influencing the Indiana Legislature to make five IAAO classes a requirement for assessors statewide and also pay for those classes. I believe we have a professional organization second to none and I want to be a part of making that organization even greater.

I appreciate your support.
