Appraisal Institute of Canada
AIC Ontario would like to welcome our new President and President Elect..
PRESIDENT Kim Passmore AACI, P.App Over the past 6 years I have had the privilege of representing Region 2: Waterloo/Wellington & Hamilton Niagara members as an AIC-ON Director and most recently President Elect. During my time on the AIC ON Board of Directors I have had the opportunity to shadow and learn from (6) Past Presidents: Joe Kireta, Steve Rocca, Murray Visser, Claudio Polito, Paul Duarte & Dino Guiliani. I am grateful to have been able to learn from their leadership and I look forward to building on and stewarding their ongoing initiatives. Most of my appraisal experience is on the fee side of the industry focusing on Agricultural & Rural properties across Southwestern Ontario. I grew up rural and riding horses competitively across Ontario as well as the US. This background along with my time in the Real Estate & Housing program at the University of Guelph really guided me towards my career as an Agricultural & Rural appraiser. As an active fee appraiser, business owner, mentor to AIC Candidates, employer of Real Estate & Housing co-op students and Board Member I have a thorough understanding of the issues and challenges that our members face on a daily basis. In conjunction with our Board of Directors and President Elect, Eric Tworo, I will continue to advocate for the good work our members do across the province, look for new & creative ways to improve member services, educate the public on the critical role we play and build relationships with key stakeholders for the betterment of our Association. Sincerely, Kim Passmore – AACI, P.App. S.W. Irvine & Associates Guelph, ON E: P: 519-763-5956
PRESIDENT ELECT Eric Tworo AACI, P.App From 2014-2017 and 2019-present, I have been the AIC-ON Director for Region 7 (Northern Ontario). Concurrently, I have been a part of the local chapter executive of the Sudbury / Sault Ste. Marie Chapter. I’ve found my time volunteering with the AIC to be very rewarding, as I very much enjoy giving back to the profession as well as meeting with peers from across our industry. I am one of three partners at a full service fee appraisal company based in Sudbury. We offer residential service throughout the Greater Sudbury area and ICI service throughout most of Northern Ontario. I take pride not only in providing quality service, but also in mentoring new candidates such that they will become the next generation of professionals among our ranks. To me, this is truly a family business; I was trained and took over ownership of the company from my father and my wife is now a candidate member after deciding to pursue a second career. As a recent new father, I have a vested interest in ensuring that if she so chooses, my daughter will have the opportunity to pursue a career in the same field that has served her family well for so many years. Over the coming years, I look forward to continuing the work of the AIC-ON Board and working alongside President Kim Passmore. It was great seeing a number of colleagues and friends at the recent AIC-ON conference in Niagara Falls and I look forward to connecting / reconnecting with many more in the coming years.
