President’s Message


Welcome to the Hoosier State Chapter of the Appraisal Institute website.  On behalf of the chapter leadership we hope you find our site useful in your appraisal career.  Our goal is to be a valuable resource to our members with services that include quality educational offerings, leadership opportunities, representation to governmental agencies regarding proposed legislation, and opportunities to network with some of the best appraisers in the business.

HSC educational offerings include seminars, courses, and two-hour chapter developed education.   We also endeavor to encourage members to pursue designation by promoting and supporting the A.I.’s Candidate for Designation program, with non-designated members actively pursuing designation, or members mentoring a candidate(s) as Advisors.  HSC will encourage the core elements of integrity, honesty and competency, and continue to promote the value of quality real estate appraisal services to the marketplace.

The HSC has a history of serving the Appraisal Institute on a national level, which continues this year as our own friend and former chapter president Stephen Wagner, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS serves as the National Vice-President.  We will proudly support Stephen, and for those who are serving locally in 2017, I ask as your President that you work to establish new standards for accomplishment in whichever capacity you are serving.  If you have any suggestions regarding any chapter meetings, outreach events, or other opportunities to grow and be involved, please be in touch.

My primary goal for 2017 is to serve you. I am eager to hear your comments, thoughts, etc. via email at or via phone at 317-341-0755

Ken Fleetwood, SRA
2017 Hoosier State Chapter President
