In December all Seattle Chapter members were sent by mail and e-mail a letter and assessment invoice for their payment of ACOW 2011 dues. To date 17% of Seattle Chapter members have contributed. We need 100% participation from you in order to keep ACOW a strong and active presence in Olympia.
“ACOW plays a vital role in Washington State appraisal politics,” says ACOW President Justin Slack, SRA, “ACOW has been very active in 2010 and will again be in 2011.” As we move into the new legislative session, we are reminded that ACOW provides an extremely important voice for real estate appraisers:
§ Vigilantly monitoring proposed legislation and regulations that may have an impact on appraisers
§ Supporting or opposing various bills or regulations that impact our profession in Olympia and nationally
§ Working to educate legislators and government agencies on appraisal-related issues
§ Educating and communicating with members of the appraisal profession or with any persons concerned with valuation of real or personal property in Washington about legislative and regulatory issues
§ Fostering and promoting the appraisal profession to the general public through education, research, and publications
If you have not yet made your contribution, you can do so online at http://www.acow-wa.org/application.html or you can complete and return the attached printable form. If paying by check, please make it out to ACOW.
Thank you very much for your time and your support.
