North Dakota Appraisers Association

Zoom Board of Directors Meeting

Tuesday, May 3, 2022

Meeting was called to order by President, Joe Sumers at 11:12am, CDT

Present: Joe Sumers, President, Vice President, Wade Becker, Patricia Hodenfield, Secretary/Treasurer, Past President, Bill Gion, Board Members: Nick Duchscher, Steve Vetter, David Nord, Eric Oberg, Kathy Huss (fka, Kathy Berry), and Debbie Ellerton, Executive Secretary. Also present was Dean Rylander from the Government Affairs committee, and many members of the NDAA membership as this was an open meeting for the full membership to listen to.

The agenda for today’s board meeting was to inform the board what the NDAA Government Affairs Committee discussed at a recent meeting.  There were six topics discussed with the following recommendations to the NDAA Board to take action following the recent Summit. They were as follows:

ASC Grant Money – Support

Recommendation to the NDAA Board.
Provide a letter to the ND State Qualifications Board, asking to move forward with a request for Experience Training Program funding. To establish a similar program to South Dakota.

Rational: It does appear that grant moneys are available for a single request.
ETP is considered long term and difficult to piggyback with South Dakota as an alternative. Underserved Areas may not make as big of impact due to limited appraisers in those areas. While Both have merit, The ETP program is considered #1.

Practical Application of Real Estate Appraising (PAREA) - Support

Recommendation to the NDAA Board:
Provide a letter of support to the State ND State Qualifications Board, to accept the PAREA program as a form of experience for an apprentice/trainee to gain experience without having to get a supervisor.
Rational: Best short-term impact to members as well as has long term sustainability. Also, it was noted that The Appraisal Institute will most likely be the first to launch this program. Each state board will also have to determine how they will handle the experience and if they will still review work product.

A motion was made by Kathy Huss and seconded by Eric Oberg to go forward with support. Roll call vote with all board members voting aye. Motion carried.

NDSU Real Estate Professionals Curriculum – Support

Recommendation to the NDAA Board:
Provide a letter of support to NDSU. This program would allow a student to obtain a minor in Real Estate Curriculum program. 
Provide a letter of support and acceptance to the State Qualifications Board.

Rational: Long term solutions as well as potential interaction with ETP.

A motion was made by Patricia Hodenfield and seconded by David Nord to table this recommendation until we know more about the implementation of this program. Roll call vote with all board members voting aye. Motion carried

Experience Training Program (ETP) – Support

Recommendation to the NDAA Board:
Send letter of Support for the program and ask the State Qualifications Board to move forward.
NDAA should offer any assistance necessary as in forming a task force with the State Board to establish details of the program as well as endorse and or sponsor legislative action.

Rational: Best long-term solution with quality education. Provides an avenue for new appraisers to enter the profession without the need of a supervisor, however, is still recommended.
This could also work in conjunction with both the NDSU Curriculum and individual efforts. The idea of piggy backing on to what the SD Program is doing does not lool promising.

A motion was made by Eric Oberg and seconded by Nick Duchscher to go forward to show support by the NDAA to the State Qualifications Board. Roll call vote with all board members voting aye. Motion carried.

Evaluations – Support

Recommendation to the NDAA Board:
Create a rough Draft of the bill to include, performing an evaluation for lending purposes only, and to include that the appraiser be held to only the Ethics and Competency Rules of USPAP.
Create a Rational to go forward with the bill to the state legislature. It was also discussed to send out a survey to the membership for support and / or comment in regard to evaluations.
Upon completion of survey and membership support, send a copy to the State Board asking for the State Qualification Board’s support to Legislative changes.

Rational: It does not make sense that anyone in the state, other than an Appraiser, can complete an Evaluation.

It should be for lending purposes only, is to assure that no one will use this type of report for private use or any other entities.
Legislation should establish USPAP Ethics and Competency Rules to assure protection of Public Trust. A motion was made by Nick Duchscher and seconded by Kathy Huss to go forward to show support for the change in ND state legislation by the NDAA to the State Qualifications Board. Roll call vote with all board members voting aye. Motion carried.

Statewide Centralized Assessors Website – Support

Recommendation to the NDAA Board:
Government Affairs and others, establish a task force to investigate & discuss feasibility. Establish contact with Vanguard (provider to a vast majority of Counties) feasibility of cost, practical applications, and amount of time to complete. (This is a very rough estimate at this point) Establish contacts with Leaders in the County and City Assessors Associations as well as State Tax departments.
Provide a Summit Format for a meeting to discuss our findings and vision of what this could be as well as any feedback, pitfalls, and Assessors concerns and visions of how it would benefit the Assessors, the State, and the public. Endorse and Sponsor potential Legislative Action.

Rational: This Bill must work for the Assessors and Counties more than it will work for Appraisers.
It must have benefit and purpose for those working with it.
It must have minimal cost to those smaller Counties as they cannot bare the financial burden of this.
It must have a plan to help with the burden of data collection and input.
It must be paid for and maintained by the State of North Dakota.
This Solution is considered by the Government Affairs Committee to have the single largest Impact on appraisers and serving the public in underserved areas of the state of ND.

A motion was made by Nick Duchscher and seconded by Eric Oberg to go forward to show support for aStatewide Centralized Assessors Website” and for the ND state legislature to help with funding for counties in ND needing funding to implement the website. Roll call vote with all board members voting aye. Motion carried.

President Joe Sumers stated that our next meeting will be set at a future date and adjourned the meeting at 12:27pm.  Meeting adjourned.

Respectfully Submitted,

Patricia Hodenfield

Meeting was called to order by President, Joe Sumers at 11:00am, CDT

Present: Joe Sumers, President, Vice President, Wade Becker, Patricia Hodenfield, Secretary/Treasurer, Past President, Bill Gion, Board Members: Nick Duchscher, Steve Vetter, David Nord, Eric Oberg, Kathy Huss (fka, Kathy Berry), and Debbie Ellerton, Executive Secretary.

The agenda for today’s board meeting was approved by Bill Gion and seconded by Nick Duchscher. Roll call vote with all board members voting aye. Motion carried.

After welcoming everyone to the meeting, President Sumers asked for a motion to approve the past meeting minutes.  Motion to approve was made by Kathy Huss and seconded by Eric Oberg. Roll call vote with all board members voting aye. Motion carried.  President, Joe Sumers stated there was no Old Business to address and therefore the meeting moved on to Standing Committee Reports.

Bylaws & Policy Committee:

Patricia Hodenfield stated that there will be a meeting scheduled in the future to discuss issues for this committee.

Membership Committee:

Bill Gion emailed each board member a detailed summary report. Our total membership as of March 1, 2022, is 148 which is the same as last year.  Bill stated that we need to continue to ask why appraisers are not members of NDAA and also continue to keep an open communication with our members.

Finance Committee:

The financial reports were emailed to all board members prior to the board meeting. Nick Duchscher stated that there is a surplus from both classes that were offered spring of 2022.  He also stated that we are showing a surplus in our banking account. There are a small number of expenses yet to be paid for the recently held appraisal summit. These are to be paid from the legislative fund.

A discussion was had in regard to a request to pay Debbie Ellerton’s expenses for the upcoming AARO Conference being held in San Antonio, TX May 12-16, 2022.  A motion to pay $2,000 of her expenses for the conference was made by Bill Gion and Seconded by David Nord. Roll call vote with all board members voting aye. Motion carried.  A motion was then made by Eric Oberg to approve the financial reports and seconded by David Nord.  Roll call vote with all board members voting aye. Motion carried.

Education Committee:

Kathy Huss reported that the “Valuation by Comparison: Residential Analysis and Logic” class offered on April 1, 2022, had 37 attendees. The class had very few expenses as First International Bank and Trust provided the classroom and no charge.  She also reported that the class: ANSI: New Standards for Measuring Residential Properties was offered by ZOOM on March 28, 2022. It had 78 attendees.

Kathy Huss stated that the fall conference classes are being finalized and will be held in Fargo, November 17-18 at the Holiday Inn. For Spring of 2023, she is looking into offering a class that will include attending the ND Real Estate Appraiser Board meeting for the morning session, and then an additional class offering for the afternoon education. 

Discussion was had regarding the timing of the fall conference being held during hunting season.  NDAA previously took a survey of its members in regard to the dates to hold the annual conference/education offerings.  A new survey will be sent to the membership to confirm the current dates are still the membership’s preference.

Marketing and Public Relations Committee:

Wade Becker reported that the Appraisal Summit was held on March 31st, 2022 at the First International Bank Building in Bismarck, ND. The attendance was great and the Summit was deemed a success. Those present were very much on board with the agenda that was presented. All in all, this was a very positive summit and those present were wanting and willing to help. Wade Becker, Joe Sumers, Dean Rylander, and Debbie Ellerton were present representing the NDAA at the summit. Craig Steinley, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS, AI-RRS added additional credibility being present and representing the Appraisal Institute. Key people from ND real state professional organizations, along with representation from the North Dakota governor’s office were also present.

Some key points presented at the Summit were:

1)    Appraiser shortage.

2)    Technology or lack thereof for public data availability to the appraiser.

3)    The aging demographic of the appraiser.

4)    Solutions including working with the Experience Training Program (ETP), and NDSU minor in real estate to allow more credentialing options for obtaining an appraisal license.

5)    Appraisal product types, i.e., enabling evaluations to be done by appraisers.

6)    How can we improve the public image of the Real Estate Appraiser profession?

It was stated that by having this summit, eyes were opened as to some of the limitations we have as appraisers. Holding this summit will help to gain a more positive public image for the appraiser. Joe Sumers and Wade Becker sent out a thank you to those in attendance.

Government Relations Committee:

Dean Rylander discussed the ND Real Estate Professional Summit and stated that to say it was a success was an understatement. He also gave credit to the task force that put the summit together as they identified the key issues/concerns in the appraisal profession. The following Real Estate related organizations had representation at the summit:

North Dakota Real Estate Appraisal Board

North Dakota Association of Realtors

ND Bankers Association

Independent Community Banks of ND

ND Credit Union Association

Legislators & also the Lobbyist for the NDAA (Barry Wilfahrt)

North Dakota Appraisers Association (President Sumers, Dean Rylander, Wade Becker & Debbie Ellerton), and

The Appraisal Institute (Craig Steinly, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS, AI-RRS)

Dean stated that the previous general scope of work (bullet points below) for the summit was followed:

·       Provide a better understanding of the appraisal profession for organizations that utilize valuation services.

·       Discuss practical solutions to challenges facing the appraisal profession.

·       Establish working relationships with other organizations within the real estate profession.

·       Foster collaboration between organizations within the real estate profession to establish common legislative goals that enhance the profession.

Dean stated that it was a great collaboration from all present, and all were appreciative and engaged to find solutions for issues and concerns. He also stated that the government affairs committee will meet to take the suggestive solutions forward to solve these issues/concerns, and we also need to focus on what we can control.  Those would be:

1)    Bring the Experience Training Program (ETP) that is being implemented in South Dakota to North Dakota. This will need to be added to the ND Century Code and there will also need to be an administrator of this program.

2)    Address evaluations and how we can allow North Dakota appraisers to complete them. Legislative action will be required to allow this. The target date for writing legislation for this is December to allow for it to be submitted by the upcoming legislative session. Note: South Dakota did recently pass legislation to allow its appraisers to complete evaluations.  

3)    Grant dollars can be applied for by the ND Real Estate Appraisal Board to help get more appraisers to the underserved areas of the state. These dollars can be enhanced by the ETP. NDSU is also creating a curriculum for a minor in the Real Estate Profession. This curriculum would include banking, real estate and appraising. President, Joe Sumers is working with Matt Schlenvogt of the ND Real Estate Appraisal Board to help develop this minor at NDSU.

4)    The Appraisal Institute (AI) will be implementing the Practical Applications of Real Estate Appraisal (PAREA) in 2023. This program will allow for another avenue for an appraiser to get licensed.  Cory Kost (ND Real Estate Appraisal Board member) stated that the AI has a $500,000 grant from the ASC and will be the first to get the PAREA Program implemented.

5)    Create a statewide centralized assessing website to allow for better access to public data. The 10 major ND metro areas do have this, but smaller communities do not.  This will require funding and mandating by the State of ND.

Website Committee:

No recent meeting or report for this committee. The chairman position for this committee still needs to be filled.  A request was made to have updated/new photos put on the website. No issues were reported for this committee.  

New Business:

PAVE – Property Appraisal and Evalution Equity task force published an action plan to address concerns about lower market value appraisals for properties owned by people of a different race from the appraiser. This program outlines the historical role of racism in the valuation of residential property, examines the various forms of bias that can appear in property evaluation practices, and describes how the government and industry stakeholders will advance equity through concrete actions and recommendations (statement taken from HUD action plan).

Joe Ibach asked Dean Rylander to the have the legislative committee look at this and bring the information to the membership.

President Joe Sumers stated that our next meeting will be set at a future date in the next month.  A motion to adjourn the meeting was made by Kathy Huss and seconded by Steve Vetter.  Meeting adjourned.

Website Committee:

President, Joe Sumers stated that the new head of the website committee will be David Whartnaby of Black Dog Appraisals, Fargo.  He will join the next board meeting.

New Business:

Evaluations

Discussion was held in stating that ND is a mandatory state so appraisers must currently follow USPAP when doing an Evaluation.  It was also stated that the state of ND has the ability to depart from that with a change in the state’s regulating legislation.

It was also stated that Minnesota appraisers can now do evaluations if they follow the interagency guidelines. They, are then not considered as doing an appraisal under USPAP.

The following comments were then made in regard to evaluations:

Bill Gion stated that if the law is changed, this could help to better serve smaller communities.

Eric Oberg was in favor of this as it could be another product appraisers would be able to offer.

David Nord stated the appraiser needs to know the standards they need to adhere to.

Dean Rylander stated that banks want appraisers to do evaluations as it would be within their skill set. We as a board can meet with the ND Real Estate Appraiser Board to work out the basic guidelines as to what we need to do to allow appraisers to do evaluations. As it stands now, anyone but an appraiser can do an evaluation.

Wade Becker stated that we have seen what banks are doing, for example, BND created an evaluation department. They would like appraisers to do evaluations.

Steve Vetter stated we cannot pass a law to regulate what people are doing.  We can only permit, through legislation, appraisers to do an evaluation.

President Sumers stated that the ND Real Estate Appraiser Board wants to know our comments and if we support appraisers doing evaluations. 

Discussion ended with a consensus that a task force will need to be put together to see what the NDAA board/members can do to get legislation changed in ND to allow evaluations by appraisers.

ND Experience Training Program:

No Update.  This will be discussed at the summit.

Code of Ethics:

Steve Vetter emailed a Code of Ethics to board members.  He stated they are verbatim from other appraisal associations.

A short discussion followed, and Bill Gion asked that Bylaws and Policy Committee address this issue. Joe Sumers then stated this will be put forth to that committee to do further research and bring it forward to the board at a future meeting.

President Joe Sumers welcomed Eric Oberg to the board for his first meeting, and then adjourned the meeting at 12:49 p.m. CDT.
