Status Changes | Effective May 9, 2019, the Appraisal Institute Board of Directors voted to eliminate the Temporarily Non-Practicing status. The status existed in the AI Bylaws for the purpose of providing a lower dues/fee level to individuals who temporarily could not work due to certain circumstances such as poor health or physical disability; family obligation or responsibility; military service; or other good cause shown.
The status, typically granted for only up to one year with no renewal option, did not provide relief to an AI professional in need of ongoing financial relief. Furthermore, AI already has a dues/fee waiver process in place that grants an AI professional financial relief based on the same circumstances. (These same AI professionals may also be eligible for relief grants from the AIERF.) Designated members may request a dues waiver between January and September.
General Appraiser Report Writing and Case Studies | Effective May 9, 2019, the Appraisal Institute Board of Directors removed General Appraiser Report Writing and Case Studies as a course and exam requirement for the MAI designation path. The AI Admissions department has removed the requirement from the Candidate Status Report of all applicable Candidates.
