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).
