The future of the valuation profession depends on the contributions that practitioners make to the advancement of the profession. Practitioners contribute to the profession in a number of ways, such as:
- Volunteering on a board, committee, or working group;
- Teaching a course;
- Writing an article or book;
- Speaking at a conference; or
- Conducting a webinar.
The ASA, AICPA, and NACVA are always in need of practitioners to serve on committees and working groups related to education, guidance, or standards matters. The Appraisal Foundation often has opportunities to volunteer on boards and committees, and so does, on the global front, the International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC). BVR is always looking for authors and speakers for its publications, books, webinars, and conferences (send an email to email@example.com). In addition to helping the profession, the more you volunteer, write, teach, or speak, the more you learn about your profession. What’s more, you can be on the cutting edge of new guidance that your committee or work group is developing.
If you haven’t yet contributed to the profession, consider doing so in 2022!
