ASA Annual Chapter Awards – Entry Forms Now Being Accepted

by Alison Ho | Jul 01, 2016

ASA’s 2015-16 Chapter Awards are new and improved this year! Entry forms for the Annual Chapter Awards are being accepted now through Friday, August 5, 2016. The chapter awards program is designed to recognize and award ASA chapters that actively provide outstanding support to the members of ASA and promote the mission of the Society. We are seeking out those chapters that reinforce the added value of chapter membership and can share best practices with other chapters and the entire ASA organization.

This year’s award categories:

Outreach Program
Recognizes a chapter with an outstanding outreach program that educated the public on the importance of using an ASA designated appraiser, promoted the ASA brand, used creative ways to communicate information with chapter members and others and was involved in educating the local community and government about the value of using an ASA member.

Mentor Program
Acknowledges a chapter mentorship program that fostered member growth within the chapter, within the ASA, and within the appraisal profession.

Professional Education Programs
Recognizes a chapter whose professional educational offerings provided a valuable benefit to ASA members.

Chapter Member of the Year
Acknowledges a chapter member who has demonstrated exceptional involvement in the chapter. This member has encouraged individual member involvement, encouraged participation in chapter activities, supported the chapter on multiple levels and has shown initiative in supporting the growth of the chapter.

Chapter of the Year
Recognizes a chapter that through its overall programs strengthened ASA, organized a series of activities designed to promote the ASA Brand, educated the public on the importance of using an ASA accredited appraiser and encouraged chapter members to grow as professionals and to be involved in the ASA.
