Welcome to the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of the Appraisal Institute. The West Coast Florida and Northwest Florida chapters merged effective April 1, 2012 creating the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter. Our goal is to be a national leader in appraisal education; to promote a spirit of friendship among our designated members, candidates, practicing affiliates and affiliates, and to create an atmosphere of professional pride, outstanding achievement and success for our members, candidates, practicing affiliates and affiliates and their firms.
Our chapter now includes 36 counties on the gulf coast and panhandle of Florida and is now the largest Florida chapter. The combined chapter territory extends from Collier County in southwest Florida to Escambia County at the western panhandle boundary of the state.
We invite you to attend our quarterly chapter meetings and educational offerings, and we encourage you to investigate the benefits of being an Appraisal Institute designated member, candidate, practicing affiliate or affiliate.
Congratulations to our newly designated members:
Glen Almcrantz, MAI, Tampa
Ed W. Smith, MAI, Lithia
Kara Zavitz, MAI - Tampa
