About the Society of Chief Appraisers (SCA):


The SCA is a volunteer organization of over 600 Chief Valuation officers and related officers involved in the reaching the final real estate collateral valuation process located in a dozen cities nationally who meet once or twice annually. The goal of these meetings or symposiums is to offer first hand learning & training opportunities to be understand and be more completely diligent to the valuation of the collateral properties for loans and bank investment. As you may be aware, over 90% of the 5,000 insured banks or non-banks do not have a staff state certified real estate appraiser and therefore are at a great disadvantage in making safe and sound loans, because they do not have staff appraisal and appraisal management expertise. These are the officers who will benefit most from our programs, present and future. At the same time, these same bank credit officers do have expertise in market risk analysis, which would be of great benefit to Appraisal Officers in protecting the accuracy of the valuations used in lending or investments by their banks.
