Recap: NCAI Connect - A Conversation with NCAB

North Carolina Appraisal Board’s (NCAB) Executive Director, Don Rodgers, and Deputy Director, Tom Lewis joined us on our NCAI Connect Webinar Series yesterday.

Don Rodgers gave an update on the changes to the leadership of the board, with Charles McGill stepping down as chairman and David Reitzel voted in as chairman. The board recently transitioned to the new appraiser standards and qualifications based on the AQB Standards, which are already having a positive impact on licensing. Highlighting the new online renewal system, Don commented that NCAB was pleased with the success of the new process and that most appraisers have utilized the process for renewal. NCAB is very supportive of the virtual learning platform (zoom, blue jeans, etc.) that has been utilized for USPAP courses and CE due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This hybrid classroom experience had not been contemplated by ASC or NCAB prior to the crisis, but with positive reactions from attendees, NCAB is supportive of considering its adoption. However, such adoption will first require approval from ASC, with a formal hearing and public commenting period, so it may be a while before it is adopted permanently. For now, it can be used until September 30, 2020.

President's Letter - Farewell

Dear fellow members of NCAI:

It is with mixed emotions that I submit to you this fourth and final President’s Report. As my tenure as President comes to a close, I am excited to begin the next chapter in my life, but at the same time melancholic that my term has to end. While not without its challenges, my time on the Executive Committee was among the most rewarding experiences of my life, both personally and professionally, because of members like you. I want to extend my sincere gratitude to the North Carolina Chapter for entrusting me with the great honor and privilege to serve what I believe is by far the best Chapter in the Appraisal Institute.
