Been reading all the post haven't posted hardly at all since the new Forum. New forum same problems as when Wayne opened this about 5 years ago. Read everyone's thoughts about organizations & not to sound like a politician but agree with both sides of joining or not joining. How can that be? Both have good points HOWEVER U gotta think about the strength of numbers. What part of the Mortgage Loan process has the most responsibility with the least say? Y I think it is because we have the least strength in organized numbers. The petition IS NOT signed JUST by appraisers there are Mortgage Co's, RE Agents, & Home Owners on that petion, because the BULLS#^& that is going on all over this country every state, county & smallest town EFFECTS every honest person in the Real Estate Industry. As Appraiser's MAYBE we should anaylize all our choices of organizations find the one that appears to have some [email protected]$s, for at least say 2 years put a combined effort into it & see what happens. Individual BIT&*&*g Hasn't got us anywhere since this Forum was first formed. The Petition has at least been in many area's & LOOK still getting signature's, all these signatures didn't come just from this Forum, they came from COMBINED EFFORTS of organizations concerned with the problem.
