We were moving full steam ahead for a return to the Four Points Hotel for the 2021 New England Appraisers Expo when the surge in COVID’s delta variant threw us a curve-ball. The escalating number of cases coupled with member feedback caused us to throw the engine into reverse sending us back to the virtual world.
The 2021 Expo will live-stream over three mornings giving you the opportunity to earn up to 10-hours of appraisal continuing education. Registration is required for either the seven-hour Commercial Expo or the seven-hour Residential Expo before you can sign up for the additional three-hours of programming. Here’s what the schedule looks like.
October 18, 2021: Everyone starts their Expo experience on October 18, with four-hours of dynamic speakers – economist Christopher Foote, congressman Jake Auchincloss, and appraiser/data scientist George Dell.
October 19, 2021: Commercial Expo attendees tune in the morning of October 19 for three-hours of top-notch education, including a panel of commercial appraisal review professionals. Also on tap is Donald Bouchard discussing what’s happening with retail malls.
October 27, 2021: Residential Expo attendees get together virtually for a couple of presentations about emerging technologies followed by a return of George Dell with ideas on how to better utilize modern analytical methods and techniques. This is three-hours of CE credit.
A big thank you to Ken Dicks, John Drew, Brad Hevenor, and Lianne Andreucci for their expertise in identifying topics and recruiting speakers to the Expo.
