Kansas City Chapter
As the world's leading organization of professional real estate appraisers, the Appraisal Institute has general appraisal members who hold the MAI, SRPA, or SREA designations and residential appraisal members who hold the SRA or RM designation. Identified by their experience and knowledge of real estate valuation, these members adhere to a strictly enforced Code of Professional Ethics and Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. Currently, the Appraisal institute confers one general designation, the MAI, and one residential designation, the SRA.
Appraisal Institute professional membership designations are conferred on individuals who have met stringent educational requirements and have demonstrated appraisal experience. Each prospective candidate must submit an Application for MAI Designation and/or an Application for SRA Designation after meeting all requirements. Once designated, members participate in a program of continuing education. Training in up-to-date valuation techniques, coupled with experience and integrity, make Appraisal Institute members the preferred source for high-quality appraisal services.
In addition to its professionally designated members, the Appraisal Institute also has other affiliations.
As rapidly as the profession is changing, appraisers today need to prepare for the future. But it's tough to keep up on your own. Appraisal Institute opens the door for you to share in the collective wisdom and experience of 25,000 individuals who are working together to build a stronger future for the profession.
