Become a Member of CAPPA
We welcome new members and would like to hear from you if you are considering joining CPA.
Please use the “Contact Page” to send your name, address, telephone number, biography, experience and expertise to our secretary who will be happy to present it to the CPA membership committee. You would then be sent an application form to fill out and return by mail with three (3) copies of appraisals for each area of expertise, two (2) passport photos and entrance fee. Once this information is screened and approved by the committee the information is then presented to the Board of Directors for review and acceptance.
An associate member can apply to upgrade their status to Accredited member when they have fulfilled all application requirements for the Accredited membership category.
New members will receive a By Laws and Code of Ethics book to review and along with the annual meetings and semi-annual newsletters they will be informed of any changes or special meetings called during the year. You will be asked to participate in our website blog and other information that might be of importance to our members.
Members are encouraged to consult with one another regarding their professional experience and appraisal expertise.
CPA has two classes of membership: Associate members and Accredited members.
ASSOCIATES (AM): Qualified individuals who have at least 3 years of experience in their field of expertise. They will be notified and may attend all meetings of the members but they shall not be entitled to vote on any resolution and they shall not be eligible to be elected as a director and/or officer of the corporation.
ACCREDITED MEMBERS (A.A.): Members who have at least 8 years of experience in their field of expertise. They will be notified and may attend all meetings of the members and are entitled to exercise one vote on every resolution and they shall be eligible to be elected as a director and/or officer of the corporation.
The first step in becoming a member of CAPPA is to apply for an application.
