I encouage all appraisers who are interested in improving the appraisal business to either SEEK A SEAT YOURSELF.....or FIND ANOTHER INTERSTED APPRAISER AND HELP THEM.

How about some of you reporting back as to WHEN current seats will be expiring in all the states across our nation.

North Carolina has two seats which expired 06/30/2001 and TWO MORE which will expire 06/30/2002. That is FOUR seats! What a difference could be made if interested, active, knowledgeable and NON-POLITICAL appraisers could be appointed to these boards.


If not you....then who?

Bob,

Excellent suggestion!! Here's the Florida information for anyone interested:

Consumer Position - Vacant
Consumer Position - Term Expired 10/31/01
State - Certified Residential Appraiser - Term Expired 10/31/01
State - Certified Residential Appraiser - Term Ends 10/31/02
This is mine and I plan to keep it!
State - Certified General Appraiser - Term ends 10/31/02
Held by a smart and fair appraiser from Miami. Hope she is reappointed.

Bye the way, IMHO, there is nothing wrong with being political. What does matter is how you prioritize ethics, knowledge, activity, interest and political activity. Keep your eyes on the goal and recognize reality must be dealt with in its pursuit. With the right priorities, ethics and integrity need not be compromized.

Bob & FranK:

I have tried 3 times now in past 5 years. My last effort was through my local delagate to the Virginia General Assembly who called last week to say he was unsuccessful. That is 2 tries with 2 different Republican Governors. Now we have a Democrat Govenor whose firts priority was to cut the budget, set aside a 2% raise for all state employees(said we can't afford it) as well as teachers who have not had a raise since 2000. I'm betting I do not have a shot at it with him. BTW, this is the same delagate who worked with me in getting legislation passed to put 2 additional appraisers on the board as well as eliminate the seal. Guess I was good enough to get better recognition for appraisers by adding 2 seats to the board, but not good enough to get one of the seats. In case you are interested, when we started with a 9 member board, we only had 4 appraisers on the board, 3 members of financial institutions, 1 education member, and 1 citizen member. Now we have 6 appraisers, 1 member of a financial institution, 1 education member, and 1 citizen member. However, I doubt I will ever get on the board.

These appointments are always made along Political or Ideological Lines.

Not always....most of the time but not always.

If no honest, ethical and informed appraisers TRY to get a board seat.....then we get political appointments.

Find someone you can support and do so. They may get a seat ...maybe not. If the effort is not made there is ALWAYS a 100% failure rate.

leart3,

Now there is a broad generalization. Have you done a survey? Conducted interviews? Have you compiled a report? In how many states have you attended Board Meetings?

There's no question Politics and Ideology can enter the mix, but my experience indicates other criteria are often considered in my state.

For instance a negative attitude and a fatalistic view would work against a candidate.

Frank if you and Bob don't think that one's Political Party, Political Ideology, participation and money contribution to one's Campaign is not related to political appointments, I have some Enron Stock I want to sell you.

P.S. How many X Enron Executives got appointments to the Bush Administration.
