August is a typically slow month in regulatory news, but there is a lot to look forward to in the coming months, including:
- The Appraisal Summit — Las Vegas, NV, September 12-14th. I will be speaking on Sept. 14th as part of a panel discussing “AMC Emerging Issues.” The entire agenda can be viewed here.
- Appraisal Subcommittee (ASC) Public Meeting — Washington D.C., September 14th. There is no public agenda yet, but my best guess is that there will be discussions around comments received regarding AMC Federal Registration fee, as the comment period ended on July 19
- The Appraisal Foundation Industry Advisory Council Meeting — Washington D.C., October 20th. On a personal note, this will be my final meeting as Chairman of the IAC, as my two year tenure will be coming to an end. I’ve been nominated to be the IAC Representative on The Appraisal Foundation’s Board of Trustees, that will be voted on during the October meeting in DC.
- The Appraisal Standard Board Meeting — Washington D.C., October 21st. This is a public meeting to discuss a recent second exposure draft for proposed changes to 2018-19 USPAP.
- Association of Appraisal Regulatory Officials (AARO) Fall Conference — Washington D.C., October 21-24th. I will be speaking on the 23rd as part of a panel discussion on AMC Final Rule and various state regulations. Tentative agenda for entire conference can be seen here.
As always, I will keep you apprised of all developments in the months to come. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!
