Please visit the links to your left for chapter news and events, membership, resources, and links to other relevant websites.

I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful early summer weather.  The sun is shining (after months of continual rain) and the humidity is down. It doesn’t get any better.


I am writing today to invite you all to participate in our 2nd Quarter Chapter Meeting this June 23, 2016 at Carlos Brazilian International Cuisine, Roanoke VA.  We have an exciting meeting lined up with reports from our chapter committees, including the Nominations Committee who have announced the nominees for the incoming executive board.


VCCAI will also be offering the FHA Appraising for Valuation Professionals class earlier that day.  Please visit AI Education Registration to sign up for this great residential class.


We are pleased to report the Virginia Commonwealth Chapter and the Northern Virginia Chapter of the Appraisal Institute have a plan of merger in progress.   In order to develop a Plan of Merger a Steering Committee has been formed consisting of ten members, five from each chapter.  The Plan of Merger will expand our Chapter geographically, economically, and socially by embracing members of both Chapters to develop viable education offerings, branch and chapter meetings, and bringing fresh faces and ideas to the table. This is a positive for both entities and we look forward to a successful merger.


Members attending the June 23rd Chapter meeting of VCCAI will have the opportunity to be heard and vote on the Plan of Merger.  Once both chapters have voted on the Plan of Merger, we will submit it to AI National for their approval.


A copy of the plan of merger will be posted on the VCCAI website on or about Tuesday, June 14, 2016.  For additional questions, please feel free to contact Steve Noble at (540) 871-5754.  Many thanks to everyone on the Steering Committee for taking the time to see this through.


Again I look forward to seeing you all in Roanoke on the 23rd.


Most Sincerely,

Jean M. Gannon, SRA

President, VCCAI
