ASA’s CEO letter to members and friends

We started off this fiscal year strong with our new International Officers taking office and the new 2022-2023 chapter officer volunteers beginning their roles. Networking and communication are essential pieces to the development of our organization, and our chapter officers play a key role in that effort. I want to thank all our volunteers who stepped up to support ASA and I look forward to learning more about the chapter’s accomplishments this year.

Earlier this month, ASA announced that its highly valued VAB6 is now available for purchase in a digital, eBook format - perfect for today's on-the-go business appraisal practitioners. Professionals around the world have been adding this influential book on business valuation to their library for decades, and now ASA has made it easier for them to do so.

 

ASA has been continuing to work diligently on updating the new website and its Find an Appraiser (FAA) tool. FAA receives thousands of phone calls and website visits throughout the year and for the first time, ASA has a membership database tool that can collect important data from all members to help us in better serving you and the international community. I encourage all members to opt in if you haven’t done so already; and if you are already signed up, definitely take a moment to update your profile. Even if you are not participating in the FAA tool, please still update your profile so that we have your most up-to-date information.  For more information, click here.

The ASA Education Foundation Auction is going live this month! I want to extend my sincere thank you to everyone who contributed donation items; we have collected a great selection for this year’s event. The auction will be happening virtual again, so enjoy bidding from the comfort of your home while supporting this worthy cause on August 15th. For more information on the items up for bid, click here.

In further education news, I am pleased to announce ASA’s ME101 Fundamentals of Machinery & Technical Specialties Valuation hybrid event happening on September 9th will be taught in Spanish. This course is being held in Tampa FL (or virtually), one day prior to ASA’s International Conference. I look forward to continuing ASA’s support for our international members with more convenient

Planning to attend this year’s ASA International Conference in person? As a reminder, the hotel reservation cutoff date is Tuesday, August 16. We hope to see as many members and friends virtually or in person for ASA’s annual conference at JW Marriott Tampa Water Street in Tampa, FL on September 10-12.
