Would it be possible to get any that have given up their designation to give me a PM? I am working on a project to review what is happening with the SRA. At this point, I am only looking for former SRAs.

Both SRA's in my family gave up the designations. One went to work for the county assessor's office and the other just retired.

Most of the SRAs that I know gave up their designations did so long ago (20+/- years) in the few years after licensing. It's been my observation that most that have obtained it since that time period haven't, but that is just a local observation.

I know a few, same time period. One guy still brings up the merger as the reason he left, another said he didn't see any value after licensing. Never met anyone who recently stopped paying rent, I'm sure a some exist and it would be interesting to hear why.

I believe one of the commonly mentioned appraisal industry leaders gave up his SRA just a few years ago for issues pertaining to changes in AI policies, but I don't want to mention names without verification.

I gave mine up a decade ago. Before merger, the residential appraiser had a strong voice. After merger, residential members were ignored.

It is something that happened before some people on this forum were born and at just about the same time licensing requirements took effect.

The American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers and the Society of Real Estate Appraisers merged in 1991 into the Appraisal Institute. Former MAI mentor cried over giving up his RM designation for what he considered an inferior SRA designation,
