    Leadership Development and Advisory Council (LDAC)

    Fostering Creative Talent in the Real Estate Appraisal Profession

    The 2024 Leadership Development and Advisory Council (LDAC) conference will be held May 15-17 at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center in Washington, D.C.

    LDAC

    The Leadership Development and Advisory Council (LDAC) is a group of dedicated appraisers who come together once a year in Washington, D.C., to formulate solutions to challenges faced by the appraisal profession.

    LDAC fosters creative thought from talented real estate appraisal professionals and generates future leaders of the Appraisal Institute. LDAC also establishes an appraiser presence in Congress demonstrating that the Appraisal Institute recognizes the importance of active involvement in the political process.

    LDAC has served as a source of leadership and as an inspiration for new programming ideas for the Appraisal Institute since 1969. Through a series of roundtable discussions, LDAC provides a forum where ideas and opinions on targeted topics of concern to the appraisal profession are exchanged.
