CHICAGO (March 25, 2019) — (RealEstateRama) — The Appraisal Institute, the nation’s largest professional association of real estate appraisers, today announced it has opened registration for its 2019 Annual Conference, July 22-24, in Denver.
“This year’s event is going to be top-notch,” said Appraisal Institute President Stephen S. Wagner, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS. “Valuation professionals will enjoy plenty of opportunities to learn, connect and play.”
