TAAD-IAAO Chapter Members:

The Texas Association of Appraisal Districts Chapter of the International Association of Assessing Officers held its annual meeting on February 28, 2018, in conjunction with TAAD’s 37th Annual Conference at the Worthington Renaissance Fort Worth Hotel. New officers were elected, and I am privileged to serve our members as President for 2018.

Special appreciation is extended to our past presidents (Rick Kuehler, Director of Administration, Dallas CAD; Alvin Lankford, Chief Appraiser, Williamson CAD; and Angela Bellard, Chief Appraiser, Jefferson CAD) for their hard work and dedication in establishing our local chapter and ensuring its continued success.

As President, I am committed to serving the needs of our membership and promoting the TAAD-IAAO Chapter, as we continue to grow. My goals for the coming year include supporting outreach and mentorship, promoting efforts to win for Texas its first Virginia Cup, and offering an IAAO class at materials-cost to members.

As has always been the case, our success starts with service to our members. Other districts seeking IAAO designations or Certificates of Excellence in Assessment Administration will benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience of our members that have gone through the process. You will be able to seek our advice and support.

I would like to thank all of you who joined our Chapter in its first few years, contributing to our success. I look forward to great collaboration this year.

Best regards,

Roland Altinger, CAE, RPA, CTA
TAAD-IAAO Chapter President
