Professional Member Program

Recognizing your education, experience, dedication, and aspirations

Established in 1997, the IAAO Professional Member Program, formerly the Member Accreditation program, acknowledges the efforts of members to keep on top of developments in the industry through continued education and ongoing service.

Belonging to IAAO is in itself a reflection of your dedication to the assessing profession. By participating in IAAO's courses, workshops, seminars and through hands-on experience you are stepping up to the next level. IAAO wants to recognize your accomplishments by conferring the status of "IAAO Professional Member" on members who meet the following criteria:

  • IAAO member in good standing with a minimum of three years experience in the assessing profession and holding no IAAO professional designation.
  • Successful completion of 150 hours of IAAO courses, workshops, and seminars, including Workshop 171 (No substitutions or course waivers will be accepted.)
  • Completion of a 15-hour workshop on USPAP (IAAO Workshop 151 or equivalent) in addition to the course hours listed above

If you meet these requirements, reward yourself. Become an IAAO Professional Member!

To apply for the Professional Member Status, complete the application and return it to IAAO with the required proof of education and the application fee.
