From my AI newsletter I got today. I know that at least three of the people listed below participate here or monitor this site. I would suggest constructive comments that the team can use. If you want to AI bash start a different thread.

AI Creates Residential Appraiser Project Team

An Appraisal Institute team of SRA Designated Members is developing ideas for presentation to the Executive Committee intended to create a meaningful value proposition for residential appraisers, seeking to better attract and retain residential appraisers.

The Appraisal Institute formed the team at the beginning of 2017 as part of its commitment to supporting and growing the residential sector of the organization. The team consists of: Stephen Wagner, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS, co-chair; John Bredemeyer, SRA, co-chair; Woody Fincham, SRA, AI-RRS; Edward Cline, SRA, AI-RRS; Rachel Massey, SRA, AI-RRS; Leland Trice, SRA; Alex Uminski, SRA, AI-RRS; Jean Gannon, SRA, AI-RRS; Frank Lucco, SRA; Charles Baker, SRA; Ernest Durbin, II, SRA, AI-RRS; John McMahon, SRA; Jennifer Marshall, SRA, AI-RRS; Danny Wiley, SRA; Donald Boucher, SRA, liaison to the Admissions and Designation Qualifications Committee; and Jefferson Sherman, MAI, AI-GRS, liaison to the Strategic Planning Committee.

Over the last three months, the team has actively discussed the SRA designation and residential appraisers in general. As the team delves into various issues and formulates ideas, it will make recommendations to the Executive Committee regarding SRAs and residential appraisers and how to attract new AI professionals.

Where's Denis's name or yours MCG? :fencing: (jk)

The thing that currently throws a big wrench in my joining the AI is that becoming designated requires a degree. Although I have 2 yrs of college (including studies overseas) the current system does not allow for designation without a degree. From what I understand, there's also no "grandfather" clause (I became CR in 2/2009) I guess the AI is considering amending that rule, but nothing set in stone from what I hear.

They amended that requirement in the last few months.

There are some good names on that list of people. I recognize about 1/3 of them and as I noted above, at least three are on this forum.

Last year at a Regional Meeting in Seattle, I worked on a focus group that discussed the residential issue; I compiled our results and it is my understanding they were sent to the Project Team.
I can tell you (and everyone else here! :rof:) that as an active-member of the Appraisal Institute, whenever I get the chance to advocate for positive changes regarding the residential segment of appraisers and our organization, I make my voice heard loud and clear; I am not the only one. And, things are moving in that direction. ;)
