President's Message

~Welcome to the NH Chapter of the Appraisal Institute ~

Katrina V. Hill, SRA 2015 NH Chapter President


Our Chapter works diligently to bring you engaging and informative programs that can translate into a productivity boost for your business. If you are a sole proprietor, like many of us, this is a key place to stay in touch with your peers, stay current on valuation happenings and gain insight and expertise.


Consider becoming a Candidate for Designation (MAI, SRA or a Review Designations AI-GRS & AI-RRS). It is said that to stay a notch ahead of the competition - you need focus, technical skills, balance and fortitude - ""If you want to be your best, spend a lot of time exploring what is more than enough."


Does your business plan include professional growth and education? There are opportunities here in our local chapter for learning, participating, networking, growth. Our chapter promotes our members with mentoring and our own NH Chapter Scholarship for candidates nearing completion of their designation requirements.
