Hello and welcome to AZIAAO website where our goal is to help educate, support, and connect all those within the Arizona assessment community. August 2016 is going to be a great month for us all. The education committee with the approval of your executive board has posted on our site a very aggressive upcoming education schedule to accommodate any of your IAAO further education and designation needs. We also have our Summer II meeting where statutory golf course valuation will be discussed by Mr. Chris Tucker, Appraiser IV with the Maricopa County Assessor’s Office.
Rounding off the month, a group of about 25 AZIAAO members will be attending the IAAO National Conference in Tampa Bay, Florida. Many will be receiving a hard earned IAAO designation, with a couple being nominated for other IAAO national awards. Also, Arizona, supported by your local chapter is in line to win the Virginia Cup which is awarded to the state with the most new IAAO designee’s.
Congratulations to the Honorable Paul Petersen, Maricopa County Assessor, leading the charge with 15 new IAAO designees. Congrats also to the Honorable Pamela Pearsall, Yavapai County Assessor, with 1 new designee, and the Arizona Department of Revenue with 2 new designee’s. The IAAO Certificate of Excellence in Assessment Administration award will also be presented to Honourable Pam Pearsall, Yavapai County Assessor. Congratulations Arizona assessment professionals! You and your local chapter of the IAAO have a lot to be proud of.
Darren Rasmussen, AAS President
