Call for Presentations

IAAO is now accepting submissions ideas for the 2022 Annual Conference, Aug. 28-31 in Boston.

Topic Areas


Topic areas are defined by the IAAO Body of Knowledge (BoK). The BoK is a framework for defining the key knowledge, skills, and subskills for the mass appraisal profession. Your submission should relate to one or more of these knowledge areas. 

As you consider your presentation topic, the BoK and potential topic areas are provided in the submission guidelines and should be used as a guide for developing your potential presentation.

Business Partners

As a business partner, you are encouraged to submit presentations related to best practices. These presentations cannot be sales pitches or commercials and must include a representative from a government assessment office as a subject matter expert. 

Carefully evaluate your presentation idea. Submissions by exhibitors that do not fully separate out any sales will not be selected by the Conference Content Task Force.

New this year is an Exhibitor Showcase – a chance for business partners to provide live demonstrations in a dedicated space.  A separate submission form will be required. This will be available in January 2022. 

Proposal Process + Selection Criteria Peer Review

Submissions are reviewed by the Conference Committee, appointed by the 2022 IAAO President and President-Elect.

To assist members applying for continuing education credits with states in 2022, please note these requirements. For accepted presentations, biographies of all presenters and a timed outline are to be submitted no later than June 10. Full final presentations are due by August 5, 2022.

Evaluation Process

All submissions are evaluated on each of the following criteria:

  • Overall topic and how it relates to the assessment/appraisal profession
  • Three clearly defined learning objectives
  • Indication of how attendees will be able to apply information to their daily work 
  • Program design/interactive learning elements
  • Overall quality of submission

Please download Submission Guidelines for complete details.


For more information, review the submission guidelines. The deadline to submit is Jan. 31, 2022.
