Portland Area Real Estate Appraisal Discussion

Portland Appraiser Goes East
I just returned from a quick one-day trip to the east coast to attend the
McKissock  Advisory Board meeting.  (For those not familiar with the McKissock name, it is a nationally-recognized appraisal school.)  The McKissock Advisory Board is a select group of experienced residential and commercial appraisers representing each region of the country and each discipline within the industry.  The goal of the quarterly Advisory Board meetings is to help McKissock’s leadership stay connected to issues relevant to appraisers, thereby shaping curriculum and strategic planning.

This was my first time with the group and it provided an opportunity to make the acquaintance of several of McKissock’s dedicated management staff as well as some highly-respected appraisers.  I also met the well-known Chicago appraiser, Paul Rowe, who I and many of my blog subscribers have gotten to know online, but may never have had the pleasure meet in person.  By happenstance, I even met one commercial appraiser who lives in the same Portland suburb as me.  It is funny to travel across the country to make the acquaintance of a neighbor.

One major topic discussed by the Advisory Board is ideas for upcoming educational offerings.  Can you think of any online or classroom subject that you would like to see made available by McKissock?

Another item addressed at the meeting are ways to make online or live local classes more fulfilling.  Do you have any ideas for improvement of appraisal classes that you’ve taken to make those offerings more engaging?

I believe that McKissock is a great organization that is absolutely dedicated to a quality appraisal (pun intended) educational experience.  They have some exciting plans for the future and are open to honest feedback.  I hope my subscribers take the time to offer their thoughts on McKissock education, even if those thoughts are negative.

Did I leave anything out or do you want to join in the conversation?  Let me know in the comments below.
