I was honored when California MBA requested an interview with me about the challenges facing appraisers in 2015 for their upcoming newsletter and happy to comply. Below is a repost of what they published this week. Thank you to the California MBA for including my thoughts and for featuring AAA AMC on their website.

Just last week I had the honor of attending the Legislative Day Conference with the California MBA group in Sacramento, California. This was my very first time attending this conference and it was such an interesting and eye opening experience. Going there, I knew that we would be hearing from the individuals who are responsible of our compliance and guidelines, but little did I know that I would also have the privilege to personally meet and speak with them.
After we had learned about the new bills being passed, we were grouped into groups of 4-6 individuals and each group was able to walk over to the Capital and meet with the different Senators present and introduce ourselves, our business and explain what we did and where our business was located. We also had the opportunity to express how each bill being passed would impact our business as well as the industry as a whole.
