    President's Message, November 2023

    Last week, my family and I gathered to celebrate Thanksgiving in the same way that I’m sure many of you did – with a large turkey dinner, some football, and a long chat next to a cozy fireplace to help take the chill off the fall weather in South Dakota.

    President's Message, October 2023

    As a practitioner, I’ve always known the Appraisal Institute to be a welcoming and inclusive organization. I owe much of my success in this profession to the AI’s training, body of knowledge, and ability to attract as members the highest quality and most knowledgeable appraisers and associated real estate professionals.

    I encourage our AI Professionals to think about what the Appraisal Institute has meant for you, and for our Designated Members in particular, ask you to consider giving back to the organization through national service.
