Providence, RI (PRWEB) July 01, 2013
The non-profit organization NAAMC (National Association of Appraisal Management Companies) is pleased to announce the release of its new membership pricing structure for Fiscal Year 2013.
Last month NAAMC’s Board of Directors voted to expand its membership structure providing options for appraisal management companies (AMCs) of all sizes. NAAMC members agreed that the most important role of the organization is enhancing public trust in the role of AMCs, and that the best way to continue to educate and advance the industry is to provide as many AMCs as possible an opportunity to have a voice in the organization. Chairperson of the NAAMC Membership Committee, Cindi Harris, managed the process of implementing the new membership pricing structure on behalf of the organization.
The decision to revise the NAAMC membership pricing structure was based on dozens of inquiries received over the past year from regional and single state AMCs, who respectfully requested more economical options considering their coverage areas.
New NAAMC Membership Tiered Pricing:
-National AMC with voting rights = $2,500/year
-AMC with less than 30 states = $1,500/year – no voting rights or board positions
-AMC with less than 10 states = $1,000/year – no voting rights or board positions
-AMC with less than 5 states = $500/year – no voting rights or board positions
All AMCs also have the option to join for a $2,500 yearly fee, regardless of the number of state licenses they have, to acquire full voting rights and board position options within the organization. There were no changes made to the pricing for associate member and appraiser member fees.
NAAMC reports that it will be reaching out to all parties who expressed interest in joining the organization over the past year with the new and improved pricing structure. Vice President of NAAMC, George K. Demopulos, of Lincoln Appraisal & Settlement Services stated, “The board strongly believes that the changes made to the membership pricing structure will assist NAAMC in attracting more members for the upcoming fiscal year.” For more information or to become of member of the National Association of Appraisal Management Companies (NAAMC), visit http://www.naamc.org or email info(at)naamc(dot)org.
