About the Washington DC Metro Chapter

The Washington DC Metro Chapter of the Appraisal Institute has been serving the area since 1939. The chapter brings national education to the local area, offering a variety of qualifying, continuing and advanced education each year. The chapter also provides annual real estate and legislative updates to ensure we stay on top of regional issues affecting their practice.

Chapter representatives monitor and react to relevant legislative and regulatory initiatives sponsored by elected officials in Richmond VA, Washington DC and Annapolis MD. These dedicated chapter volunteers work closely with the Appraisal Institute's professional staff to ensure our response to those initiatives produces the best possible outcome for area appraisers.

We connect with each other through the chapter's quarterly meetings where innumerable business relationships and lifelong friendships have been forged. Candidates for Designation also turn to the chapter for mentors and on-going support in their quest for the MAI or SRA.

The chapter's ongoing communications through its newsletter, website and social media help us stay abreast of the local area news and information which affects our profession. We can also reach out to fellow appraisers via these channels to raise questions, share concerns and bring relevant issues to the attention of the association.

Bottom line, the chapter provides the ideal local compliment to the extensive benefits offered by the Institute, ensuring AI designated members,candidates, practicing affiliates and affiliates have all the resources we need to build a successful career in real estate appraisal.
