IAAO to work to expand opportunities for minorities

In wake of recent protests in the United States and around the globe, as President, I have asked the Board of Directors and our Executive Director to launch a series of activities to recruit black and minority candidates into the assessment and tax policy profession in order to make the assessment industry more reflective of our communities. In addition, IAAO will work to engage and welcome those candidates into the ranks of IAAO, foster their development into IAAO designated assessment professionals, provide expanded volunteer positions for previously underrepresented populations in the IAAO, and finally, provide new pathways to leadership positions in IAAO, both in our volunteer and professional staff ranks. For more details, please view the following video message.
