President's Message

Thank you for being a member of the Utah Chapter of the Appraisal institute.  I am excited for the opportunity to be the chapter President for 2019.  There are changes taking place within the appraiser profession.  Being a member of the Appraisal Institute has the ability to make sure you are prepared for these changes. 

There is a story that many are familiar with of a small boy that visited his neighbor who was rumored to be the wisest person in town.  The boy asked if he could test the man’s wisdom.  The man replied that he was impressed that such a young man would be interested in obtaining such wisdom and he would do his best to answer his question.  The boy held out his cupped hands and said, “There is a bird in my hands.  Is the bird alive or dead?”  The man thought for several moments and said, “That is a very interesting question.  If I say that the bird is alive, you will squeeze your hands tighter and take the life of this beautiful creation.  If I say that the bird is dead you will open your hands and let the bird fly away.  You see, young man, the answer to your question lies within your own hands.”

There are many factors in the appraisal industry that are out of our control.  The Appraisal Institute provides high quality education, lobbying efforts, networking opportunities, and service opportunities.  But ultimately your future lies in your hands.  I look forward to serving each of you and serving with each of you this year to promote the Appraisal Profession.  Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments you might have.  Lets make 2019 a great year!!
