The May 2023 Spring Conference Planning is nearly complete.  The conference is being held in Spokane, WA.  More to follow very soon!


The Appraisers’ Coalition of Washington (ACOW) is a Washington non-profit corporation organized by the Washington chapters of the appraisal organizations and consists of Organization Members, Individual Members, and Affiliate Member within Washington State.

The purposes of ACOW are as follows:

      • To educate and communicate with members of the appraisal profession or with any persons concerned with valuation of real or personal property in Washington about legislative and regulatory issues.
      • To support the maintenance and improvement of The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and its effective enforcement by the State of Washington.
      • To foster and promote the appraisal profession to the general public through education, research, and publications.
      • To raise the funds necessary to administer the activities of this non-profit Corporation and to use such funds to carry out the purposes and objectives of this non-profit Corporation.
      • To promote the public interest and to foster greater public trust and confidence in professional appraisal practice through non-partisan interaction with legislative bodies, government regulatory agencies and other related organizations.

ACOW’s membership on the NAA Board of Governors will give ACOW access to a network of appraisal professionals who are committed to provide a voice for appraisers in national and local laws, regulations, rules and lender policy that affects our profession and livelihood.  It also provides ACOW with continuously updated information to assure we are fully informed and current on activities, including changing requirements of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, and other market participants.

It will also allow other state appraisal organizations such as ACOW to learn what the Appraisers’ Coalition of Washington has done and is doing to protect Washington State Appraisers and their profession.
