President's Message

The New Hampshire Chapter of the Appraisal Institute enters 2014 in very good health. Our chapter is fortunate to have many key individuals in place on the Board of Directors who work very hard to keep the chapter operating smoothly. We will continue to offer five 2-hour seminars during the year along with offering several one-day classes. Our seminar presenters will continue to include appraisal and real estate professionals who are at the top of their field and our one-day instructors are the best that the Appraisal Institute has to offer. Our chapter currently has 15 candidates for designation who have committed themselves to stay on course and obtain their designation within the next few years. We were recently informed that Karen Ryan, the Chapter Secretary and Editor of the New Hampshire Chapter Newsletter, will now be known as Karen Ryan, SRA. There are a couple of other advanced candidates in the chapter that should also receive their designation in 2014. To encourage and support our members toward their designation, the Board of Directors began a scholarship program in 2013 that awards financial assistance to our advanced candidates. We also successfully paired up all of our candidates with local Advisors as part of the Appraisal Institute Mentor Program that began last year. The path toward designation takes a commitment of both time and money on the part of the candidate. Our chapter is committed to supporting our candidates as we realize that the long-term health of the chapter will require an influx of new appraisal professionals moving forward.

The New Hampshire Chapter of the Appraisal Institute welcomes the input from all of our members. I encourage any member to join us on the board or on a committee as we would love to have your assistance running the chapter. I would like to welcome any residential or commercial appraiser, who is not currently part of the chapter, to attend one of our seminars and meetings and take the first step toward becoming part of our organization. Please contact Cindy Rogers, our Executive Secretary, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

This is another important year for the New Hampshire chapter and the Appraisal Institute. We recently transformed the organization into a membership association of professional real estate appraisers. While the classification titles have changed for many in the chapter, most appraisers did not see any noticeable change. The New Hampshire chapter will continue to offer quality education and be the main voice for New Hampshire real estate appraisers and the Appraisal Institute will emphasize the “Designated Difference”. If you have any questions about the New Hampshire chapter or the Appraisal Institute please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
