The 2014 Day with Appraisers event 

The 2014 Day with Appraisers event was a success.   Over 242 Arkansas real property appraisers attended the May 8 event at the Little Rock Embassy Suites hotel.   Dennis Badger of the Appraisal Foundation’s Appraiser Standards Board was the primary speaker, along with two other brief presentations.  Written and oral evaluations of the seminar were positive.  This event provides seven hours of continuing education and is an opportunity for contact and conversation among appraisers.
