ASA Visits the Bright Lights of Las Vegas for the IAAO Conference

Representatives from ASA’s Real Property Discipline recently participated in the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) annual conference on September 24-26, 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. This year’s event featured one of the most knowledgeable and respected analysts on Wall Street, Steve Eisman, who inaugurated the conference with his keynote address. In addition to Mr. Eisman’s presentation, IAAO offered approximately 60 courses on eight tracks and presented exclusive programs on The Secret to Hotel Casino Valuation and Understanding and Using Comparable Transactions during the three-day event. In between sessions, attendees gathered in the exhibit hall to hear the latest news on products and services from vendors in the industry.

ASA-RP members, Mike Pratt, ASA and G. Adrian Gonzalez Jr., ASA, operated ASA’s booth during this enormous event. Our volunteers spent most of their time speaking to attendees on topics such as the need for qualified appraisers, the reasons why they should join ASA, and the Society’s Real Property Discipline’s educational and accreditation programs. The purpose in attending this event was to promote the Society’s Ad Valorem/Mass Appraisal designation program and the reciprocity with other private professional organizations in an effort to bolster membership.

ASA would like to thank Mike Pratt, ASA and G. Adrian Gonzalez Jr., ASA for representing our society.
