Each year, the Appraisal Institute honors the best and brightest of the valuation profession with its J. Scott Robinson Lifetime Achievement Award and Outstanding Service Award. In addition, 2021 will be the first time AI, and its Women’s Initiative Committee, bestow the Women’s Initiative SPOTLIGHT Award.
The Appraisal Institute’s latest video highlights the qualities that are recognized with each of these awards and encourages AI professionals to nominate their deserving peers, colleagues and mentors.
The J. Scott Robinson Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to an AI professional who best demonstrates high ethical standards; contributed to the Appraisal Institute at the chapter, regional, national and/or international level(s); provided service to his or her community; and contributed to the appraisal profession. A minimum of 20 years of service is recommended to be eligible for this award.
The Outstanding Service Award is presented to an AI professional who has contributed ideas, service hours and dedication to ensure a specific program or effort is implemented at either the chapter, region, national and/or international level(s).

Additionally, the program or effort must be beneficial to chapters, regions, national, international, designated members, candidates, affiliates, practicing affiliates and/or the profession.
