The Association of Texas Appraisers joins a la mode’s Community Partnerships Program

July 10, 2014

a la mode welcomes The Association of Texas Appraisers (ATA) today as the latest appraiser organization to join its Community Partnerships Program.  The Community Partnerships Program gives real estate appraiser organizations tools to grow their ranks, reduce member and operating costs, and increase visibility.  This is done through a la mode discounts for members, affinity partnerships that donate a portion of member purchases back to the organization, partnered education courses, sponsorship of organization events, and more.  Basically, the program provides help to appraisers in ways that software providers traditionally haven’t.

“The ATA is excited to be part of the Community Partnerships Program as it will allow us to provide additional opportunities and more benefits to our membership,” said Bobby W. Crisp, co-founder of The ATA.

The ATA was formed in 2006 to provide reasonably priced, convenient continuing education and professional networking opportunities for real estate appraisers and other interested parties within the State of Texas.  The ATA also works to establish and maintain minimum requirements for membership, to confer membership designations to properly qualified appraisers, and to serve the needs of its members.

“We’re happy to support The Association of Texas Appraisers in serving the needs of Texas appraisers,” said Matthew Biggers, director of community partnerships at a la mode.  “It’s more important than ever to have organizations representing and protecting appraisers’ interests in each state.  The Community Partnerships Program supports every group no matter how many use our products.”
