The Appraisal Foundation Opens Call for Board of Trustees Members
For Immediate Release
January 16, 2019
(Washington, DC) –The Appraisal Foundation announced today it opened a call for qualified candidates to fill three at-large trustee positions for its Board of Trustees, which is the governing body of The Appraisal Foundation. The three individuals elected will serve three-year terms beginning on January 1, 2020.
“Our annual call for applicants is a real opportunity to cast a wide net for candidates that bring leadership and non-profit management experience who also have a deep interest in advancing the appraisal profession,” said David Bunton, president of The Appraisal Foundation. “Those individuals elected will have an impact on a profession that the public trusts to determine the underlying value of assets that bolster the world’s most powerful economy, while also navigating rapid change brought on by technological advancements.”
The Board provides financial support and oversight to the Foundation’s two independent boards, the Appraiser Qualifications Board and the Appraisal Standards Board. The Board meets twice a year in-person in the Spring and Fall, and while Trustees are reimbursed for travel expenses, they are not compensated for their time.
Elected members of the Board of Trustees may include individuals from all appraisal disciplines, users of appraisal services, former appraiser regulators, academics, and business leaders. Of the three seats available on the Board, two are currently held by incumbents. Throughout the search process, the Trustee Nominating Committee will be committed to creating a diverse board of the best and the brightest who are dedicated to advancing the appraisal profession.
Completed applications for Board vacancies must be received by March 25, 2019. Please contact Board and Councils Program Manager Arika Cole at 202.624.3072 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org about the application process.
