Canada's Real Estate Appraisers of Choice

Find An Appraiser

Dear AIC – Ontario Members;

 

I would first like to thank Joe Kireta for his service this past year as president and being an important mentor, preparing me for my term as President.  I would like to welcome Murry Visser as our President Elect.

 

I am excited to be working with him and the rest of our committee Ontario Board in serving the  membership.  I hope to continue the positive momentum and inclusive culture with Murry that has been cultivated at the Board Level.  We hope to attend as many events as we can on behalf the membership.

 

As I sat at my desk to write the introduction to this newsletter, I could not help but realize just how much I have learned since the very first moment I showed up in Toronto hotel to attend my first Provincial Board meeting.  What I quickly discovered when I started on this board % years ago is that I met an incredible group of dedicated staff and volunteers who truly care about where this this appraisal profession is going.

THE AIC – ONTARIO 

Held its’ AGM on June 8th in Ottawa where I took over the role as your President for the 2017-2018 year.  At the conclusion of our AGM, we moved quickly to the opening events for the AIC International Valuation Conference.

 

The Conference was a huge success.  I think everyone enjoyed the interactions with our American and International colleagues.  Massive thanks to the National Board and Staff for their hard work and commitment in making this conference such a memorable one.

 

Vikki and I were fortunate to attend a dinner meeting earlier in the week where Francesco Sorbara MP from Voughan-Woodbridge was a guest speaker.

 

Listening to a Federal Minister talk about how the appraisers role is a valued part of the financial system in Canada is testament to the years of hard work advocating to get into the ear of these offices.

 

I can tell you that this board and staff is dedicated to doing its part in this province to continue to advance and raising the profile of the appraisal profession.

 

This year we adjusted Conference scheduling holding the Ontario AGM on June 8th 2017 and our conference will be October 25 – 27 2017 in Niagara Falls.

AIC International

Valuation Conference

Dan Brewer – Glenn Fletcher

 

Glenn Fletcher was awarded the Presidents Citation at the National AGM.  Well deserved Glenn!!!

 

 

2017 Presidents Award of

Excellence was award to

 

Jennifer Cusack

AACI, P.App.

 

Dan Brewer accepted the

award on behalf of Jennifer

 

As a general rule Jennifer prefers to stay out of the spot light, preferring to work tirelessly in the background.  She always engages with our New Candidate members to ensure they are welcomed and feel comfortable at Chapter meetings, ensuring they are introduced to other members and advised of the opportunities and benefits of being a volunteer.

 

She is the quiet leader, the unassuming individual who always gets the job done because she cares.  She is a team player who ensures we all strive to be professional in all we do.  She always has the best interest of the members and the profession in everything she does.  She represents everything that is good, kind and progressive with the AIC.

 

 

 

Congratulations!

 

Jennifer and thank you for

everything that you do!

 

June 27th

Sudbury/Sault Ste Marie!!!

 

Vikki and I had attended the Chapter meeting held in Sudbury at the Idylwylde Golf and Country Club.

 

It was a great evening and a wonderful opportunity to meet our members and some new candidates.

 

Thank you to Jeff Marsh, Tyler Cockburn, Rick St. Denis and Gerry Rouleau (Chapter Executive) for the warm welcome and the opportunity to speak to your membership.

 

Tyler Cockburn – Region 7 – Director and Steve Rocca

 

We are working to strengthen government and stakeholders relations so that they know who we are and what we do.  We recently sat on the provincial government’s round table to advise them how to implement their mandatory home energy audit program that is set to launch in 2019. 

 

 

On June 28th

Vikki Leslie and I, along with Keith Landcastle, Andre Hannoush and Peter McLean President Elect AIC hosted several lenders to C.D. Howe institute event

 

“How to cool Toronto’s housing prices.”

 

I hope this practice continues at future industry related events with our stakeholder’s to further our recognition.

 

Visiting and supporting the chapters is a goal of mine for the upcoming year.  Helping them find the speakers they need… keeping our growing membership engaged.

 

Keeping members engaged is incredibly important in cultivating the next generation of leaders in this organization.

 

We always have a need for volunteers and I believe they are cultivated at the chapter level.

 

Please feel free to contact me or Vikki, we would love to join you at your next chapter meeting.
