Opening Pandora’s Box: The New Wild West of Appraisal Modernization @ Via Zoom
Sep 15 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm


  • Check in begins at 2:45 PM
  • Class is 3-5 PM
  • 2 CE Hours 
  • Instructor & Seminar Developer: Mark R. Linne, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS 

This seminar will explore how technology, pandemics and GSE modernization efforts work in the aggregate to offer profound challenges to the valuation professional. Topics will be artificial intelligence, mobile technologies; machine learning, AVMs, the death of appraisal forms and how the existing landscape will experience a tectonic shift over the next 3 years. In addition to providing a perspective on the changes that are beginning to emerge, participants will hear a variety of opportunity paths that will allow them to make sense of the changing environment and what they can do to make the most of the opportunities emerging from this seeming chaos. A sample outline of the seminar discussion: 

Appraisal Modernization requires a discussion of: 

    • Artificial Intelligence (The “Other” AI) 
    • Machine Learning 
    • Automated Valuation Models (AVMs) 

Appraisal Modernization Includes: 

    • New Forms 
    • New Processes 
    • New Players (Inspections/Hybrids/AVMs) 
    • New Understanding of RISK

This class is being offered for FREE as a THANK YOU for supporting the VCCAI.

I’m Their Leader – Which Way Did They Go? (4 CE hrs) @ Blue Mountain Brewery
Oct 13 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
  • Check in at 12:45 pm
  • Seminar from 1-5 pm     
  • CE pending w/VA State Board; approved by Appraisal Inst.
  • Chapter Dinner Meeting to follow
  • Seminar created and presented by Joseph S. Durrer, Jr., MAI, SRA  

The thrust of this seminar is:

Scope of Work Rule clearly sets forth for us:

“The appraiser has BROAD flexibility and SIGNIFICANT responsibility in the manner of detail and manner of disclosing the scope of work in the appraisal report or appraisal review report.”

Yep! We’re talking about that 30+ year old mandate –  USPAP!

We, as licensed appraisers, can never get away from its requirements and guidelines. Presented for discussion and analyses is a series of “Attention-Getters!”

  • It’s that gotta’-always-stay-pumped-up attitude – WHY?
  • What role does USPAP play?

The numerous “Q & A’s”, plus the “I-Knew-Better-Really!” attention-getters are designed to challenge the licensed appraiser via the hands-on solving by the class. The suggested solutions of these scenarios will be in many forms – including solving mathematically via case studies.


There will be a SMALL set of materials to print.  They will be emailed to you.

Separate registration is required for the dinner meeting, but please make plans to attend!

The seminar does not include food; there will be a beverage station.
