Three Grassroot State Appraisal Organizations Meet
January 17, 2014
Greensboro, NC – Officers of three contiguous, grassroot appraisal organizations met today, taking the next step in unifying the Nation’s working real estate appraisers in order to address common goals and concerns facing the profession.
Representatives of The Virginia Coalition of Appraisal Professionals (VACAP), The South Carolina Professional Appraisal Coalition (SCPAC) and The North Carolina Real Estate Appraiser Association (NCREAA) met in Greensboro, North Carolina and discussed topics ranging from Fannie Mae’s activities regarding appraisers to the focus of The Appraisal Foundation on the profession and the day to day business of appraising.
Ideas and experiences were shared on the true concerns of working appraisers, what each entity has done to organize and what they have achieved in their respective states.
The three organizations have pledged to work together on future issues, not only to help each other with their individual challenges, but also on broader issues that affect all appraisers in all states.
“Standing together on issues will strengthen the working appraiser’s voice, steering the profession towards practical and common sense reforms. A unified effort will also demonstrate the gravity and substance to the concerns we raise, making them more difficult to ignore.”
There are no plans on creating any new, larger organization, only an effort to unite, network and work together. Other grassroot appraisal organizations will be welcome to participate in any future communications and efforts.
