The 2016 Appraisers’ Forum was held in Chicago on March 17-19th. Nearly 60 appraisers and industry professionals gathered for the event and it was a great success filled with informative presentations, unparalleled networking and a fun time for all!

The Forum started off with a 7-hour USPAP course taught by Jean Novotny and the MDNA Chicago Chapter graciously welcomed all participants for a St. Patrick’s Day themed dinner and meeting. Presentations covered Overhead Cranes, Wire Machinery, Legalities of Appraising, Ribbon Blenders, The Appraisers’ Toolkit, Presses and more. Friday afternoon was spent at Mazak’s Midwest Technology Center touring their facility and learning more about their machinery.
