AI Announces New Association Management System

The Appraisal Institute is excited to launch its new and improved association management system, known as an AMS, for AI professionals, staff and students. That’s the topic of the On Point column in Valuation magazine’s second quarter 2019 issue.

The column from AI President Stephen S. Wagner, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS, addresses what new enhancements will be made towards the Find An Appraiser search, “My Account” self service functions and education search.  The “My Account” area of AI’s website will be completely new with improvements to the registration section, online store, membership and FAA profile.

AI professionals, students, customers and staff will be able to enjoy benefits such as:

  • Increased user accessibility to data.
  • Improved business processes and efficiencies.
  • Integrated web experience.
  • Self-service capabilities that will make interactions with AI simpler and more convenient.

This software is expected to go live Oct. 1. Read On Point to learn more about AMS, and check out the other timely content in Valuation magazine’s second quarter 2019 issue.
