» STEPS TO MEMBERSHIP
Complete the enclosed application and return it to ASEA
along with the appropriate application fee.
ASEA will review your application.
If your experience meets ASEA's requirements for membership your application will be approved. If your application is not approved, your entire processing fee
will be immediately refunded.
Within 10 working days, after ASEA has approved your membership, you will receive a letter of acceptance and a Code of Ethics. The Code of Ethics must be signed and returned, along with the remainder of your certification/membership fee. (ASEA membership
dues are tax deductible.)
Once your fees are paid, ASEA will send your Certification Document, sample appraisal, an Appraiser's Handbook and a wallet-sized identification card listing your name, appraiser number and membership expiration date.
*Although it is not required, all newly certified members should try to attend an American Society of Equine Appraisers (ASEA) seminar or complete the ASEA Home Study Course within 12 months after being certified. Seminars are held at various locations throughout the United States. The 4 ½ day seminar or Home Study Course covers the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, Principles of Appraising, Valuation Methodology, Market Analyses and Appraisal Report Writing. This is important information you'll be able to use immediately and that will enhance your new business. Plus, the hours of classroom credit you earn can be applied toward achieving the educational requirements of the AQB's Personal Property Appraiser Minimum Qualification Criteria. Seminar schedule information is available upon request.
