The North Carolina Chapter of the Appraisal Institute is part of a global association and was chartered in 1957 under the predecessor organization, American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers.  Today, the NC Chapter has just under 600 Designated Members, Candidates, Practicing Affiliates, and Affiliates across the state including over 300 of whom have achieved the MAI and/or SRA designations through the Appraisal Institute (   Every year, our Chapter hosts over a dozen educational offerings to real estate practitioners.  We meet four times a year in key cities across the state.  Our mission statement is "The mission of the chapter is to advance professionalism and ethics, global standards, methodologies, and practices through the professional development of property economics worldwide."

 The Chapter is the largest in Region V and strives to provide superior AI benefits at the local level.  We are headquartered in the Piedmont Triad area of the state.


Dear NC Appraisal Institute Colleagues: 

As I write this letter, it is a snowy day in the Tarheel State and the trees are still barren - spring has not yet sprung. As every year, this winter is a time of anticipation. Once the joy of spending holidays with our families has worn off, most of us become eager for the first sunny days of spring.

As a chapter, winter always feels a little sleepy, as we await the spring Real Estate Valuation Conference in Raleigh and, of course, the summer shrimparoo. This year, we'll be shaking things up a bit in the summer, with no shrimperoo, but instead the Appraisal Institute’s Annual Conference on July 25-27th in Charlotte. We plan to have our quarterly meeting on Monday, July 25th, and hope that this event is well-attended by our chapter. There will be all sorts of promotional items and swag, as well as educational offerings and opportunities to network with appraisers from across the United States and beyond. This is an event not to miss!

This year, we have new chapter-driven events to look forward to, thanks to the hard work of our Board of Directors and committees. With Mike Moody, MAI, at the helm of the Government Relations Committee, we are planning a Legislative Day in Raleigh this spring. Our lobbyist, David Ferrell, will help guide us as we storm Jones Street and discuss the topics of the day with our legislators. Government Relations is locked and loaded for the best year yet.

The Appraisal Institute-NC Chapter PAC is up and running. At the January meeting at Biltmore, we held our first raffle and raised money for the PAC. Items raffled included a beach condo, a Land Rover driving experience, cases of wine, a gift basket and pound cakes. A good time was had by all, and some lucky winners got to go home with prizes in hand. A weekend stay at a beach condo for a $25 raffle ticket is not a bad return on investment, plus the lucky winners can say that they have helped support our profession. We have a substantial amount of work to do to reach our PAC fundraising goals for the year. If you are interested in donating, please read the Government Relations page of the website for more information.

The Education Committee is hard at work, with Joel Tate, SRA, and Sheri Colvin, MAI, planning new "homegrown seminars" and an additional Real Estate Valuation Conference in Charlotte in the fall. Be on the lookout for new, engaging seminars, about timely topics pertinent to appraisers in North Carolina.

As you can tell, the chapter has been busy. We have spent the winter planning and prepping for a successful 2016 and we cannot wait for all that is in store this year! If you have not been to a chapter event in a while, please come join us. We miss you.

2016 Chapter President
