"NAIFA Establishes Education Cooperation Agreement with American Society of Appraisers
Minneapolis - The National Association of Independent Fee Appraisers has entered into an agreement with the American Society of Appraisers' Real Property Committee to develop, maintain and present joint education offerings. The agreement was signed and announced at the ASA Annual Meeting in Minneapolis on August 7, 2008."

Looks like we will be seeing many more educational offerings in the area soon, sponsored by both NAIFA and ASA.

More like precursor to ASFMIFARICS...seems like a ground swell of organizations are starting to group together. Too bad AI didn't want to merge with Farm and ASA, that would have been good. But I am waiting for the RICS merger with ASA, now that would be a cool designation to get.

This did not just happen over night. For example many prominent ASA members and instructors attended the NAIFA instructor clinic earlier this year and NAIFA instructors were invited to attended the ASA instructors clinic that was just held.

The objective at this time is to work together in as many ways as possible. Being a designated member of both I think good things are happening.

This is a good move and should help strengthen the educational offerings. Very good

Hello There Dennis! How long has it been? NAIFA Instructor's Conference late 90's? This forum is a great place to meet new friends and hear from old friends. I didn't mean were old, are we? I was told you got rich after starting your own real estate appraisal school years ago. You were right, by the way. Do you ever sponsor courses in the Ohio area?

I hope its a good thing. The problem is the ASA does not have any Real property courses since the last AQB shake up. So really it just seems like we are getting IFA's classes and marketing to ASA members. But I think the IFA members getting access to our BV and M&E classes would be good for them. It would be good to get more representation with Real Property in ASA, hopefully the IFA will give us ASA-RP a louder voice...we are just background noise to the BV people now.
