RMA's Commercial Real Estate Appraisal Managers Forum is a peer-learning event that focuses on structuring, organizing, and effectively managing the commercial real estate appraisal ordering and review function in your bank. The forum gives chief appraisers and other credit professionals who have the responsibility for ordering and reviewing commercial real estate appraisals the opportunity to expand their knowledge on a variety of issues via structured presentations given by a lead facilitator, guest speakers who are industry experts, and open round table discussions with other attendees.

The presentations and discussions will cover topics related to having an independent appraisal ordering and review process that complies with all regulatory expectations. You will benefit from the problem-solving techniques discussed by your peers, regardless of the size of your institution. Expect to share information, ask questions, and exchange ideas to broaden your knowledge and understanding of the issues discussed.
