The Institute of Assessing Officers, which is chartered by the New York State Board of Regents, is the professional and educational arm of the NYSAA. Membership and the right to use the IAO designation are gained by satisfying certain experience requirements and by the successful completion of an examination covering all aspects of appraisal and assessment administration. An assessor with "IAO" after his or her name is recognized as one who has achieved the highest level of professional competence.
To apply for membership in the Institute of Assessing Officers (IAO), download the IAO MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION. IMPORTANT: Signing up for the IAO-1 Course does NOT sign you up for the IAO Exam. Read the instructions carefully!
Additional information about the exam is available in the INSTRUCTIONS FOR IAO CANDIDATES.
