Call for Articles

Our membership has a long history of having specialized experiences in a diverse range of properties and practice areas. Our members are involved in some of the most sophisticated and challenging valuation environments occurring today.

The American Society of Appraisers’ Machinery & Technical Specialties Committee publishes The M&TS Journal, whose purpose is to serve as a tool for providing our members’ insights and experiences from which all may learn and to provide a venue for educated discourse.

We are calling for articles that cover the professional practice of valuation as well as specific valuation concepts and methodology.  If you have questions about the suitability of your topic to the Journal, please contact the editor for guidance: Brad Hartsburg, ASA, at brad@fortressappraisals.ca or (403) 650-1122.
