IAAO Board of Directors, Region 3
Assistant Chief Administrative Officer of Value
Hillsborough County, Florida
Goals if elected
My main goal is to support the goals and objectives of Future Assessment 2025 and help ensure they are being met.
The conversations of the last couple of years within the organization are not new. As chair of the Membership Committee in 2019, these topics were front and center. Not only that, but members serving IAAO much longer had similar stories of similar dated conversations in prior committee work.
Now that IAAO’s strategic plan addresses these topics, we need to make sure the conversations are no longer just conversations, but rather constructive plans put into action to move this organization forward.
The industry is dwindling, while the work increases. How do we attract new talent? How do we bring pride back to the industry in a way that encourages others to want to join it? How do we elevate IAAO so those jurisdictions and states who see no value in what we do realize the value? How do we better assist small jurisdictions who have no resources to purchase today’s technology, attend conferences, take courses for designation and add credibility to the work they do, or defend their hard work when needed? What does it really mean to be an international organization, and why would another country be interested in joining us?
How do we assist more women and minorities in obtaining leadership roles in their offices? Why would someone want to work for IAAO Headquarters? How do we become a leader in the conversation and quest to do something about the affordable housing problem in America, as we are the historians of the market?
There is so much I feel we can be doing, but in the end, all I can promise is to keep caring and to work hard for IAAO to do and be and grow our industry better.
The work of the IAAO is not only important to the membership, but the communities each member’s jurisdiction operates within and beyond. It is also important to the professional growth of all those working, or one day seeking to work, in our profession.
I’ve spent several years volunteering with IAAO, some appointments more challenging than others. The one thing that has held true in it all is the importance of the work beyond myself.
I am running for the IAAO Board because I believe what we do matters.
I believe I can help formulate genuine responses to many of the questions our industry needs answered, and contribute to the progress this organization needs to see as we move into the future of assessment.
