ASA Technology Update

April 20, 2022
As you know, ASA recently upgraded and launched a new website, a new Learning Management System, a new membership database and a new accounting system. This coordinated launch was the most ambitious technology improvement project ASA has ever undertaken, and it affects every aspect of our business (both online and in the back office).   

Each one of these new systems were put into place with the goal of improving your online experience and to make your interactions with ASA more efficient, more effective, and more pleasant!

From the modernized and clean look and feel of the website, to the new chat functionality with Member services, to self-reporting your CE hours, to searching for ASA education in ways you have never been able to do before, all the new technology/functionality is the culmination of years of planning and execution.  

This is the first of several “ASA Technology Updates” you will receive over the next few months. Future updates will be included in your e-newsletter, Valuer. These updates are designed to impart information about our upgrades, provide you tools to help you navigate through the changes, and to keep you informed as to the status of some items that are still “coming soon”.

Hints to Success
  • If you have not yet logged into our new website, please be sure to use your email address as the user name and your ASA ID as your temporary password. After logging in, you’ll be prompted to update your password for future visits. Don’t know your ASA ID? Hop onto the chat (see the bottom right corner of the website) and ask!
  • We have put together a few videos to help you navigate:
    My ASA Profile
    ASA Membership Directory 
    ASA Membership Login Process 
    ASA Find An Appraiser Tool

Here are some new items/new functionalities to check out!

From the Membership Department:
  • Login to view the NEW ASA Member Directory. ASA Members now have the ability to easily find and connect with other ASA members without having to search using the Find an Appraiser feature.
  • Have you updated your profile on the new Find an Appraiser? Gain more visibility from potential clients by adding your photo to your listing, adding keywords to your search functionality and take the time now to update your FAA profile/biography (My FAA Profile).
  • Chat with us! If you need assistance logging in or have questions about courses or your membership, just send us a chat message using the chat window on the website. 
From the Credentialing Department:
  • We have a brand new online credentialing application process.  Login to the website, select My Applications to get started.  You can also track your progress from this section.
  • We also have a brand new online reaccreditation application process.  Login to the website and select My Credentials to get started.  Our online credit tracking system now includes a self-reporting option so you may track your CE credits as they are earned.
From the Governance Department:
  • If you are on a committee, you can easily update your Conflict of Interest under the My Committees section of the website.
From the Education Department:
  • Brand new search functionality allows you to search for ASA classes based on discipline, on the type of class (OnDemand, Virtual, etc.), by date in a list, by date on a calendar, and more.
COMING SOON! Here are a few items to be released shortly:
  • View your course registration history.
  • Viewing and printing accreditation and reaccreditation certificates online.
  • Under construction- the My Credentials and My Applications webpages are up; however, some functionality is not yet at 100%. If you notice any missing items and/or have any trouble accessing your information, please feel free to Credentialing Services at 1-800-272-8258.  
We are excited to be able to bring you a better and more efficient ASA. Thank you for all you do to support ASA and our mission, and a special thank you for your patience as we continue to roll out the remainder of our upgrades.
