IAAO partners with local sponsoring agencies and educational coordinators in offering our courses/workshops. The International Association of Assessing Officers has developed a Coordinator’s Handbook for IAAO Coordinators. It serves as a useful resource of information on the administrative duties and specific rules and regulations.
The procedures outlined in the handbook are to be followed unless the IAAO Professional Development Department has given prior written approval for variations. Coordinators are asked to read this handbook to familiarize themselves with the functions of IAAO organization. The Professional Development Department is aware that many problems may arise that are not included in this handbook. Anyone needing additional assistance should not hesitate to call the Professional Development Department at 816-701-8100 for assistance. The IAAO office hours are 8:00 am–5:00 pm CST.
Other helpful documents for Coordinators include:
