Hi All,

The National Association of REALTORS Appraisal Committee will be meeting in Washington DC in May. We have arranged for the following presentation to be open to appraisers from all Professional Associations. Heck, we'll open it up to all appraisers.

Location will be either Marriott Wardman Park or OMNI Shoreham.

I wish you could put the discussion on line or record it on CD. This would make a good on line forum with feedback from appraisers from across the country. Not many people can or are willing to travel to Washington. We have the Internet, lets use it.

I think we need the teckies. I know there's a way to have a transcriptionist typing in the presentation, and Q's and A's to a chat room, and someone reading the emailed questions to the speakers.

I'd take the time to attend via internet - but can't take the time to drive the 2,000 mile round trip.

As far as distance is concerned, the only appraisal trip longer than this one would be the distance to come visit you, Frank!!! :D

Doing this on line or on the tube is a fantastic idea!!! Heck, I'd even PAY to help with costs.

What about CSPAN?? They do stuff other than the House & Senate.....

You could do this thing on this forum or a similar forum format. Let each speaker make his presentation in writing or streaming audio. Then appraisers could make comments and ask questions. It could be spread out over a week or more and look at the input and exposure it would get. Which is probably why it will never happen.
In this day and age, it is expensive, dangerous, and a poor allocation of time, etc., to go to these functions. Most of the people that sponsor these functions and attend them are on somebody else’s expense account and just looking for an opportunity to see the city lights.
I went to Burmuda to a banking conference a couple of years ago. One of the bankers I had seen at previous conferences had recently been appointed to the Federal Reserve Bank. He sat in the 1st class section on leather seats at about double the price our seats costs. That is the only thing I like about air travel. If something goes wrong, the big shots buy the farm first. Personally, I like the cheap seats in the tail section.

Austin,
In a former life (before I was an appraiser) I had a job where I made between 8-15 round trips a month 8O from LA to Jacksonville, FL (no, I never met Pammie) for about 2 years. That was enough commercial flying to last me 3 lifetimes!!

I've climbed into all sorts of tiny aircraft :roll: to fly into all sorts of tiny, short, bumpy, dirt airfields 8O in the pursuit of my appraisal career, but climbing on a commercial airliner for an appraisal meeting is where I draw the line these days!! (With apologies to AirphotoBill's brother the airline pilot!)

Cheers,
Nancy

My son is in college in DC and we intended to visit him around that time. Perhaps I can schedule our trip for the same period and attend the conference and report back to you'all. (how's that for a carpetbagger learning the southern dialect?)

John,

Kind of sounds like a Hollywood actor trying to sound like a Southerner!! Try again but this time as y'all (get real lazy sounding with it). Have a safe trip and keep us posted if you do attend.

Thanks for the interest and suggestions. Not sure about the net meeting given the location and configuration of the room, but will check to find out what is possible. We may be able to record and make that available.

At the very least, there will be reports posted here from folks in attendance.
