Nearing the end of my career, I personally realize the importance of CCAI in where I've been, what I've done, what I've learned."

-Richard C. Sorenson, MAI

"Whether just starting your career or already established, membership in The Appraisal Institute provides a wide variety of quality education options, consistently high ethical standards, and a variety opportunities to network with other appraisers, and related real estate and financial market participants."

-Karen T. Emerle, SRA

"Benefits of membership include up-to-date continuing education, opportunities to serve the appraisal professionals in the industry in various capacities, social interaction and access to a vast network of appraisal professionals. An MAI since 1984, and a member of the Chicago Chapter since1981, I strongly believe the Chicago Chapter of the Appraisal Institute could be an advantageous association for anybody who desires to be in the appraisal industry."

-Michael A. Wolin, MAI SRA

"I joined the Chicago Chapter of the Appraisal Institute because of the excellent educational resources afforded members and the ability to speak with seasoned veterans of the Chicago Chapter of the Appraisal Institute. It is truly difficult to find fellow appraisers that truly understand the business and have such a depth of insightful knowledge. The Chicago Chapter is the proverbial North Star of chapters, in my opinion, as the depth of appraisal knowledge in the Chicago chapter runs from rural to urban properties and from nationwide to worldwide properties. Every commercial and residential appraiser would benefit from joining the Chicago Chapter just to be well informed and to have the ability to call a knowledgeable fellow appraiser for those complex assignments or insight into running a fee shop."

Since joining, leadership opportunities have been made available to me that were not available at other chapters. I have also participated as a member. The members have been very supportive of me and helpful in my journey. I have enjoyed my time with the chapter members and hope to continue to do so."

-L. Stacy Letton, MAI, SRA
