The Association of Appraisers Regulatory Officials (AARO) spring conference is in full swing in Seattle in a couple of days. The conference is being held at the Westin Hotel, May 4th through May 6th, 2018.

This conference is attended by appraiser regulators form across the country. Also there are lenders, real estate professionals, and of course, appraisal management companies; all of whom are there to promote their concerns regarding appraisers and the appraisal profession.

So it is important that appraisers attend too! The only ones attending representing appraisers is appraisers! If you’re not there defending yourself and the appraisal profession, then your voice is not being heard. So it would be a good idea to come on out for at least one day anyway!

This year a day pass is being offered for $250. The full conference fee is $565 (non Member). I have attached a tentative conference schedule. And no, you do not get CE. But, you do get to mingle with those that determine your future. And you can voice your opinion!
