AI Washington Office

WELCOME

Because the Appraisal Institute’s Washington Office is the only government affairs office in our nation’s capital representing real estate appraisers, Appraisal Institute members are uniquely positioned to have your voices heard by lawmakers and regulators.

The Washington Office’s mission is three-fold:

  • Advance the concerns of Designated members through continual interaction with Congress, federal agencies, and state legislators and regulators.
  • Keep you informed and as up-to-date as possible on those key issues and how they affect you.
  • Support Congressional candidates who are pro-appraiser and pro-real estate through our political action committee, AI PAC (the Appraisal Institute Political Action Committee). 

The five elements of AI's Government Relations Program: 

  • Testimony
  • Comments
  • Lobbying
  • Grassroots
  • Political

Hosting Members of Congress

A great way to communicate with members of Congress is to invite them to local chapter meetings of the Appraisal Institute. Most members of Congress take periodic trips to their state/district, setting aside time to hear comments and concerns from constituents. Meeting with large audiences of constituents also gives elected officials an opportunity to meet new voters and do so in a way that is easy on their busy schedules. Similarly, constituent meetings give designated members and candidates of the Appraisal Institute an opportunity to interact with policymakers who have a say in the laws and regulations that govern their profession. At the very least, this interaction helps educate the elected officials about the appraisal process and the Appraisal Institute.

The next time your chapter is looking for a speaker, consider inviting your members of Congress!
