IAAO partner on Aug. 16 webinar on emerging topics in appraisal bias

IAAO is joining fellow industry organizations to present the next webinar in the Diversity Inclusion Series: “Emerging Topics in Appraisal Bias,” from 1-2:30 p.m. Eastern on Aug. 16.  The free webinar will have two sections, including one on the Philadelphia Appraisal Bias Task Force. While federally led reports on the topic of appraisal bias have lacked focus on possible proactive steps to help appraisers, the Philadelphia Appraisal Bias Task Force worked inclusively to make sure not only that the appraiser perspective was heard, but also worked to incorporate action items that can benefit the appraisal profession in both the short- and long-term.

The first online seminar section will review With Action’s “Restorative Appraisals” proposal to the Brookings-Ashoka Innovation Challenge, which was one of three appraisal-centric solutions that won a grant from the 54 proposals submitted. IAAO, along with the American Society of Appraisers (ASA); American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers (ASFMRA); Appraisal Institute (AI); Massachusetts Board of Real Estate Appraisers (MBREA); and the National Society of Real Estate Appraisers (NSREA) are offering the complimentary webinar. Registration is now open.

The Third Exposure Draft of proposed changes to USPAP is now available for review and comment. Public comments are critical to the development of new editions of USPAP, and the Appraisal Standards Board values all input it receives.
