The Annual Spring Conference on March 25 in downtown Modesto featured some new speakers and several familiar ones as well. Once again, attendees have said it was one of the best they remember.
The Annual Spring Conference by the Northern California Chapter of the Appraisal Institute is the premiere real estate conference in the Central Valley of California. The conference began with its annual “State of the Profession” session featuring the California State Director of the Office of Real Estate Appraisers and the Appraisal Institute lobbyist in Sacramento, Mike Belote. The day long conference featured eight breakout sessions on various topics, and the keynote speaker during lunch was Michael P. Zagaris, CEO of PMZ, Inc.
This year there were over 125 attendees who enjoyed the informative speakers, visiting with exhibitors, and networking with each other.
Many thanks the 2013 Spring Conference Committee, the Nor-Cal Chapter Executive Director Lisa Estes and Chapter administrative assistant Pat Moore for their hard work over a ten month period leading up to the conference. The chapter would also like to thank our sponsors and exhibitors who helped make the day a success, including Marshall & Swift, LIA Administrators & Insurance Services, Valbridge Property Advisors, ParcelQuest, and the Appraisal Institute itself.
