Happy Anniversary IAAA!!!

Everybody at the International Automotive Appraisers Association would like to thank you for your support and dedication to our organization over the past 14 years. The 1AAA, the only group of its kind, was started by a small group of veteran auto appraisers back in 1994. The founding members include, Jamie Del Valle, Joseph Jesser, David Laigle, Jeremiah Lee Larson, Robert Lorkowski and Anthony V. Monopoli.

Through word of mouth and grassroots efforts, the IAAA has become the go-to source when consumers and legal counsel are in need of certified appraisers. We have members across the United States and Canada, and hope to extend our reach beyond North America in the coming years.

As 2006 comes to an end, the IAAA’s best way to gauge its accomplishments is to look back. By looking back we can also get a clear picture of what our future holds_ I can’t focus on the economy or the events that are taking place around the world, but I will share some interesting comments made during my interview with Gary Bennett. His name may not ring a bell, but we have all seen him running all over during the Barrett-Jackson auction. He is the guy with the slicked back hair and ponytail. Bennett is the senior automotive specialist with Barrett-Jackson. Gary Bennett: “When I think about Barrett Jackson’s success over the last several years consider, we’ve had 9/11, we had a stock market crash, we had desert Storm, we had a dot com crash and then you can believe that the economy is still in the sh—ter and Barrett

What the IAAA Has Accomplished in Ten short Years?

The International Automotive Appraisers Association (-I-A-A-A-) was incorporated in 1994. It has unified appraisers, provided recognition for them and became a media by which members could communicate. The IAAA code of ethics gives members a standard by which they can follow sound business practices. The IAAA has provided opportunities for appraisers to test their skills through its Master Appraiser Program. The Apprentice program has been an acceptable means of training and recognized by the State of California’s Compensation retraining program.
