I thought the purpose of the forum was to post about ways to improve the profession. Instead it has turned into the 10,000th posting about how bad the NCAB is, multiple complaints about the NCAB as well as other Appraisal Boards & Commissions. Why can't we just for once stay on the subject. We don't all live in North Carolina nor do we have a bone to pick with that state or any other state. How about something positive in ways to improve the profession? If you don't like a system, work to change it. I worked with my state delegate a few years ago and got the composition of the Virginia Appraisal Board changed from 4 appraisal members out of a 9 member board to 6 appraisers, and had the use of a mechanical or rubber stam seal dropped from the regulations. (Communicator Magazine, December 2000-"How one appraiser changed the system"). Don't get me wrong, some posters have been severly harmed, mistreated, denied due process, and generally been illegally treated. I agree they have. However, we have heard their stories over and over again. It is now time to move on IMHO. Please?
Maybe Wayne could come up with another forum called "Board Bashing".
