Personal Property Resource Panel

In order to effectively raise the profile of the Personal Property discipline from the perspective of The Appraisal Foundation, expert advice and resources are necessary to help the Board of Trustees of The Appraisal Foundation  successfully reach out to these constituents.  The institution of the Personal Property Resource Panel (PPRP) will enhance the work and overall profile of The Appraisal Foundation as a multi-disciplinary organization, as well as help to associate the Personal Property discipline with The Appraisal Foundation’s mission to maintain and enhance the public trust in the valuation profession.

The Personal Property Resource Panel provides a permanent forum for assembling representatives from diverse backgrounds of personal property profession, so that The Appraisal Foundation’s Board of Trustees: 

  • Has a centralized ongoing facility for communication with representatives of the personal property discipline; and 
  • Benefits from information, advice and recommendations developed by the Resource Panel on issues relevant to the discipline.
The PPRP is currently composed of 12 members (listed below) who are elected to the panel and includes those currently serving on The Appraisal Foundation's Boards. For more information on the PPRP, please contact Arika Cole at arika@appraisalfoundation.org
