Most LDAC participants are nominated and sponsored by their Appraisal Institute Chapter. Care is taken to maintain a balance of individuals from diverse ethnic, racial, religious, cultural, gender, and geographic backgrounds.

Up to 100 Participants will be selected based on the following criteria:

  1. Must be a Designated Member or enrolled in the Candidate for Designation program.
  2. Work experience (minimum of 3 years real estate experience or have taught real estate courses for 3 years)
  3. Professional quality of work, demonstrating an outstanding ability in appraising or related profession
  4. Personal attributes, to be described in letter of recommendation (i.e. an up-and-coming leader in his/her Chapter, a strong contributor to discussion on a sophisticated level)
  5. Balance and diversification of the Council



LDAC establishes an "appraiser presence" in Congress. Organized into Congressional Teams, LDAC participants lobby Capitol Hill and demonstrate that the Appraisal Institute is made up of professionals who recognize the importance of being actively involved in the political process. Visit the Appraisal Institute Government Affairs page.

Up to 45 Points of Appraisal Institute continuing education (CE) credit may be earned for participating in the Leadership Development and Advisory Council conference. Please refer to Regulation No. 10: Continuing Education for more details. CE will be granted at the end of the conference, after full participation is documented.
