Experts Resource Pool
The Appraisal Foundation has established the Subject Matter Expert Resource Pool as a source of experts to assist in developing guidance on emerging complex valuation topics. The subject matter experts will research recognized texts, journals, articles, educational offerings and other resources in order to provide voluntary guidance on issues. Subject matter experts are not compensated for their time but are recognized in all issued guidance.
NOTE: The Appraisal Foundation understands that as volunteers most SMEs have other obligations, including full-time employment; however, it is vitally important that if you are selected as a SME you are able to fulfill your obligations until completion of the project. If you believe there are any circumstances under which your availability may be affected, you should reconsider service as a SME until such time you are certain your schedule will allow you to see a project through until completion.
If you are willing to share your expertise, be part of a broader conversation, and receive recognition for your contributions, please click fill out the SME Application Form.
All appointed SMEs will be required to sign and adhere to the Subject Matter Expert Confidentiality Agreement prior to being appointed. Please review the Subject Matter Expert Confidentiality Agreement to ensure you do not have a conflict prior to submitting your application.
