At Appraisal and Umpire Association, The spirit under which our Association was formed is a simple one. Insurance is a vital part of our economy and our personal lives. It is a public good and therefore demands a level of competence and ethical standards. We are that standard in Appraisal and Umpire services. We self govern our membership and hold each of our certified Appraisers and Umpires to the highest standard. If we find evidence of misconduct or lack of candor in answering to complaints filed with our organization. The certification will be revoked and the member decertified by this Association.
At Appraisal and Umpire Association, we are concerned with the quality of our members, not necessarily the quantity. We are tasked with maintaining the highest standards and therefore review applications of members with a prior criminal history or have previously revoked or suspended licenses or certifications by state agencies.
Our Mission is to promote the professions of both Appraisal and Umpire adhering to a code of ethics through the Certification process. To advocate for the proper training, licensure, and ongoing recertification that indicates mastery of specific skills for successful Alternative Dispute Resolution by Qualified Industry Experts.
