Fast forward to 2019, it is hard to believe that on September 27th, we will be having the THIRTEENTH annual Fall Conference. It has become the Chapter’s mainstay event in the region for networking and real estate information/knowledge. It also helps support our commitment to offering the best real estate appraisal education available.

But, we need your help! By becoming a Friend of the Conference through a contribution of $100 or more, you will gain recognition as a supporter of our biggest event of the year. Your name will be visible on the chapter website and you will also be recognized at the Conference itself.
