New appraisers, their membership and mentoring:
New appraisers have a choice taking NEAA’s “core course. The course is offered in house several times a year. Schedule to be announced or you may contact the executive secretary by calling 901-758-2659. If it is more convenient for you, you may take the course and the USPAP online by contacting Dave Maloney (301-228-2279) or email.
Both, the in house course and the online course, offers class members the opportunity to submit an appraisal of their writing for review. NEAA cannot stress strongly enough that new members who do not have an established client base or have not ever written a personal property appraisal, need the encouragement of a mentoring program. New appraisers then will know HOW to write an appraisal acceptable to industry standards, and they will have the knowledge that they can call or email a mentor who will offer suggestions to help them establish their appraisal practice. After the educational experience of taking NEAA’s program, your educational program continues with NEAA mentoring. You can call the office of NEAA at any time.
Knowledge • Experience • Integrity
NEAA has adopted as its standard text for appraisal writing, Appraising Personal Property: Principles and Methodology by David J. Maloney, Jr., and has developed its own writing standard which is compliant with USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) requirements.
No testing is required by the NEAA for membership IF you have had previous appraisal education by a recognized appraisal society or association. Courses offered by ISA, AAA, and ASA are recognized by NEAA and your accreditation level earned by these groups will be bridged to the NEAA. Fees for the first year of a bridged membership is $160.00 for the first year and $60.00 for the following year.
