THE BS FROM THE AI, MAI, APPRAISAL INSTITUTE
Take your Career to the Next Level…Join the Appraisal Institute Today! How does being a Designated member of AI benefit your career as an assessor? It was instrumental in my being appointed as the Ames City Assessor. There is only one other appraiser in the assessment offices in Iowa who is also a MAI. Being designated provides me with instant credibility when I discuss values with property owners, and as an expert witness on appeal cases. — Gregory P. Lynch, M.S., MAI, CAE, CCIM How does your AI designation function in concert with your work as an assessor? I work full time as a practicing assessing officer for a well-established community having a tax base of 80 percent commercial and industrial real property and approximately 20 percent personal property. Mine is not an elected position but one based on direct performance of my responsibilities. I believe it is absolutely necessary to have the skills, knowledge, education and experience to ensure I'm providing the highest quality of ethical and competent service to the taxpayers in my community. Being designated provides another assurance that I'm accountable for how I conduct myself professionally. — Micheal Lohmeier, MAI, SRA What prompted you to obtain an AI designation? The educational opportunities available under the Society of Real Estate Appraisers and now the AI. Also, since I also do fee appraisal work the AI is the industry gold standard on the fee side of the equation and shows potential clients you are part of a professional organization with ethical, educational and designation standards to abide by. — Miles Anderson SRA, CAE https://www.appraisalinstitute.org/assets/1/7/assessor-path-to-MAI-designation.pdf
