After a membership vote showing overwhelming support of the merger between ASA and NAIFA, the two organizations have reached an agreement creating one of the largest networks of U.S. professional real estate appraisers. As the effective date of July 1, 2018 quickly approaches, we are sure many questions have been raised. Members of the ASA and NAIFA Merger Task Force are hosting this online webinar, as they answer your questions on topics such as credentialing, dues, designations and chapters.

We welcome your questions in advance so we may prepare as complete a response as possible; these can be sent to mergerinfo@appraisers.org. We will also be able to accept questions during this webinar.
