President’s Message

We are facing unique times as a nation as we enter the 2nd Quarter of 2020.  I want to update everyone on a few changes that have recently occurred due to the current situation surrounding the Coronavirus.

Postponed Seminar – The Chapter has postponed the April 17th seminar “What is up in Technology for Real Estate Appraisers.”  We are looking at options to hopefully reschedule at a future date that is to be determined.  We apologize for any inconvenience to those who had signed up.

Region IX Meeting Atlanta – The 2nd Quarter Region IX Meeting was scheduled for May 1st & 2nd in Atlanta.  This meeting has been cancelled.  It will now be virtual and take place via GoToMeeting on May 1, 2020.

LDAC 2020 Rescheduled – LDAC 2020 has been rescheduled to October 26-28.  The reopening of registration will be announced once the LDAC Planning Committee determines that date and the number of seats available.  We will announce this as soon as we are notified.

Information from Appraisal Institute National:  Here is a link to some information from AI National that should be helpful for appraisers to remain aware of developments and resources offered:  https://www.appraisalinstitute.org/news/coronavirus/

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions of how the Alabama Chapter can better serve its members. I know this is a difficult time for everyone.  I pray that everyone stays healthy and that we get through this sooner than later.

Mark Haller, MAI, SRA
