"Thank you for your support of the Appraisal Institute and for allowing us to serve you. As I promised when I began this work, we are listening and learning from members, users of appraisal services, and key real estate stakeholders, taking swift and incisive steps to ensure that the best of the Appraisal Institute is reinforced and expanded. I have reorganized the Appraisal Institute staff to more sharply focus on AI's strategic goals, improve operational efficiency and effectiveness, and move forward with transparency, accountability, collaboration, continuous improvement and professional conduct and service. We look forward to continuing to serve you in 2024." Cindy Chance, CEO
