Government Affairs Committee provides advice and counsel to the Association's Board of Directors as it relates to public policy and legislative priorities. It will closely look at strategies and initiatives that the Association may undertake to effectively advance its legislative and public policy agenda, particularly on substantive issues involving the appraisal profession or the Association. The Committee will develop and propose recommendations to the Board of Directors regarding strategies to:
(1) Prioritize legislation that advances the core fundamental principles of the Association concerning the promotion and improvement of the administration of appraisal issues and that protect the interests of the profession as a whole;
(2) Develop new and strengthen existing relationships with legislators and policy makers to raise the Association's profile, and the profile of the appraisal profession as a whole;
(3) Develop grassroots initiatives and relationships with entities outside of the profession where such initiatives and relationships help to advance the Association's legislative and public policy agenda; and
(4) Devote the necessary and appropriate resources, including human resources, to ensure effective representation of the Association's interests at the state and federal government events.
