If anything we should be helping appraisers and focusing promoting the good appraisers and appraisal companies.
Ready for some ideas to do this.

Pam, getting together at the FREAB meetings is a start. I think we can at least begin with the assumption that anyone that takes the time to go has his ethics in a row and is at least trying to stay legal and ethical. Certainly I have received business from you and Mike both since we met at the FREAB meeting. Perhaps we could help by continuing to encourage everyone to attend. I can't make every one, but I sure learned a lot from the two I've been to. Also, Frank knows the best Mexican bar!

MEXICAN bar??

I thought y'all said I had to be a MEMBER of the bar to attend! :lol:

Look forward to begin attending on a regular basis. From what I've read so far, it's a pretty educational experience. (The meeting, not the bar!)

Short background: I've been appraising for just over three years. Recently became certified. Now that I've come this far, I realize how far I have to go! Apparently the learning never stops.......which is why I like this job!

Would joining one of the local chapters of a national organization help? I realize bad apples come in all forms, some with nice designations, even. However, perhaps the professional environment of such a group could have a positive influence? Also, a couple of us have discussed some sort of regular get-together of local appraisers - to get to know each other, discuss common issues, etc. Have any of you tried something like this?

Okay, time to fire up the grill. It's Friday night and I have at least an hour of free time before I knuckle down to figuring out the six inspections I did today.

To all,

There is a chapter of the NAIFA in Jacksonville and it is struggling because of a lack of caring members. Sounds to me like the perfect fit.

Pam,

Contact:

Reginald M. Carter, IFAS
4242 Genoa Ave
Jacksonville, FL, 32210
Phone: (904) 737-6020
Fax: (904) 737-6030

After going to NAIFA's site I realized the actual name of the chapter is Southeast Georgia but don't let that slow you down. Names can be changed if supported by the chapter. Note, Reginald is from Jacksonville. I wouldn't sugar coat it, the chapter as I understand it is barely functioning but it sounds like you have a groundswell in your area. If I can help at all call 941-743-8613.
