Welcome to the site of the Louisiana Chapter of the Appraisal Institute. Founded in 1990, the Louisiana Chapter is one of over 75 other Appraisal Institute chapters whose goal is to be a national leader in appraisal education and to promote a spirit of friendship among our Designated members, Candidates for Designation, Practicing Affiliates and Affiliates.
The Louisiana Chapter is comprised of over 200 real estate professionals more than half of which hold either the prestigious MAI or SRA designation. In addition to exhibiting a higher level of competence than the minimum standards required of appraisers who are merely licensed or certified, our Designated members, Candidates for Designation, Practicing Affiliates and Affiliates are committed to upholding a rigourous code of professional ethics. We invite you to attend one of our Chapter meetings, and we encourage you to learn more about the benefits of joining the Appraisal Institute.
