Thank you for taking appraisal classes through AASC. It makes it possible for me to continue to serve as president of AAREA and work on behalf of Arizona appraisers, something I would not be able to do without the financial support these classes provide. Some of these activities include developing surveys, fighting for legislation, representing AAREA at Appraisal Foundation Board meetings, and this year getting member discounts at Office Max.
Joanna Conde, President, AASC
Additional AAREA Note: As president of AAREA, and a member of the AAREA Peer Review Committee, I am often called by members who use the service and protection of the Peer Review Committee to discuss issues with appraisals or with Complaints that have been filed against them.
Recently I have received a number of calls from appraisers who wish my USPAP expertise, are AAREA members, but who have not taken their USPAP courses from me. I do not mind helping my students, but I find that those who haven't taken my classes, still expect me to give information for free, which really is an expense to me, personally, because it takes my time.
In the future, those AAREA members who wish to consult me on USPAP matters but who have not taken my USPAP class will be charged at the rate of $25/half hour with the funds going to support AAREA.
