“I can’t think of anything that shows you are more committed to your work and your profession than a professional designation. A job applicant who has a professional designation earns an automatic interview from me.”
Marcus Kinrade, AAS, RES
Wake County Tax Administrator

“The IAAO has certainly set the global standard for our profession as it relates to designations.  Achieving a designation places you in a select group of professionals and will certainly aid in advancing your career to the next level.”

Brad Fowler, AAS, RES
Catawba County Tax Administrator

“In the property tax field, there is nothing as universally recognized as an IAAO Designation. The confidence garnered both personally and professionally is invaluable. I would not be where I am today without these credentials.”

Ken Joyner, RES, AAS
Mecklenburg County Assessor

“In addition to improving my confidence on the job, my designation afforded me the opportunity to take on new responsibilities and projects, earn professional credibility, and achieve an IAAO instructor certification.  This group is extremely supportive and motivating, and will guide you every step of the way!”

“Obtaining a designation was truly one of the most rewarding accomplishments of my career. The process for obtaining the CMS designation tests a cadastral mapper’s knowledge and abilities beyond any of the courses and exams I have taken. I encourage others to consider pursuing their CMS with this group. I wish I would have done it years ago!”
