HOW TO APPLY
Registration has reached capacity of 100 participants and is now closed. Save the date for LDAC 2019 - May 15-17
If you have questions about LDAC 2018, you may contact Evan Williams or Scott Brody.
Up to 100 Participants will be selected based on the following criteria:
Must be a Designated Member, Candidate or Practicing Affiliate in good standing with the Appraisal Institute.
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).
The following items are required for registration:
Letter of recommendation from an Appraisal Institute Designated Member or Chapter Executive Director (which gives a clear picture of the nominee’s abilities and professional activities);
Address letter to: Rodman Schley, MAI, SRA, LDAC Chair
Application form (to be completed by the nominee online);
Photograph of nominee; and
Registration fee of $585 (refunded if the nominee is not selected to attend).
Once the registration period ends, or when the program reaches capacity (whichever happens first), a waiting list will be started. Up to 15 names will be taken for this list. When a registrant cancels, the waiting list will be contacted in order of position on the list. If the individual contacted chooses not to register, the next person on the list will be contacted.
Any cancellations for the LDAC meeting must be submitted in writing. Confirmed attendees should not assume that a cancellation has been granted until confirmation has been received. Substitutions are not permitted. The following is a refund schedule for cancellations:
Up to 30 days prior to program start date (refund in full)
15 to 29 days prior to program start date ($100 cancellation fee)
Less than 15 days prior to program start date (forfeit of payment)
If extenuating circumstances arise and a registrant needs to cancel after the deadline, a written explanation is required and must be provided within 2 weeks after the program date in order to waive the fee. Your registration fee may be reimbursed upon receipt of the notification of circumstances, only if received within the stated timeframe.
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.
