Please join me in congratulating our newest designated members in 2017:

John W. Von Santen MAI, AI-GRS


Our 2016 President, John G. McMahon,SRA, has done a phenomenal job in expanding our sponsorship program, promoting AI membership through our classrooms and events, and developing home-grown seminars to better accommodate our students. As we approach a CE renewal year, my first priority as the 2017 CCAI president was to increase our course offerings at both our Chicago and suburb locations. To view our full class schedule, go to: Please note that the new deadline for CE renewals is June 30th.


Your membership and participation in chapter events, education, and committees has been and will continue to be essential to the chapter’s growth. I highly advise candidates who are already on the designation path, as well a designated members, to join AI's Candidate Advisor program. As a candidate, this a great program to access resources and receive guidance from experienced members. Also, an Advisor may receive up to 25 hours of AI CE credit towards their AI CE cycle in accordance with the Bylaws, Regulation No. 10 and policies of the Appraisal Institute.  For more information, please visit: .



Our next meeting is Thursday, March 23rd in Bloomington. Brian Weaver from IDFPR will be discussing renewal changes to CE timelines. Click here to register.  


See you at our next Chapter event!

Peter Poulos,MAI
