Please get involved with your local appraiser coalition. We must come together as an industry if we want things to change.
For too long we have been a very individualistic community of appraisers, closed off to local and even national appraisers. Always watching our backs and never really helping each other out. We have even go as far as criticizing our peers and infighting.
We must have a united voice and a common position to changes taking place within our profession. We must band together in all aspects, help each other out and participate in change.
There is no reason why we shouldn’t be as united as the Realtor associations. They work together to make change, we can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines and wait for things to ‘happen’. We have seen how that has turned out.
Please get involved! Join your local appraiser coalition. Since I am missing some states, please feel free to suggest changes and additions! Thanks!
