The 2018 National Leadership Resource Registry is now open for submissions! To be considered for national committees, individuals must express their interests within the Registry by Sept. 1
. To access the Registry click here
, then log on to the Appraisal Institute website.
Even if individuals submitted their interests into the Registry last year and there are no changes to their preferences, they will need to log back into the Registry. If preferences are unchanged, there is a box that can be checked to have the interests moved into the 2018 Registry. Individuals also can change or express new interests.
If an individual would like to develop certain skills before serving on a national committee, please have them consider joining a panel in their area of interest. Groups are appointed from panels to study specific topics for committee review. Joining a panel will allow people to serve for a shorter time commitment until they are ready to devote the hours demanded for committee service.
We thank everyone in advance for indicating their preferences in the Registry. We look forward to a strong response, which will help to broaden the base of participation in the organization and serve as a source of new ideas and growth.
