The Appraisal Institute is looking to expand the role of women in the real estate valuation profession, and created an important new committee to lead that effort. That’s the topic of the On Point column in Valuation magazine’s third quarter 2019 issue.
The column from AI President Stephen S. Wagner, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS, addresses the organization’s Women’s Initiative Committee, which is an effort by AI professionals seeking a pathway to assist in fostering the growth of women in the valuation profession. The Women’s Initiative Committee was approved by the Appraisal Institute Board of Directors at its July meeting in Denver. Wagner further explains that the Women’s Initiative Committee seeks to cultivate AI-supported:
- professional development training,
- networking opportunities,
- career outreach opportunities and
- other professional growth opportunities, especially for female appraisers.
