Issac Peck, Editor of Working RE Magazine, joins us to discuss his recent article:
This is a short, informative article that really nails down the problem facing the future population of appraisers and (more importantly) what we can do about it. In the article, Issac gives a call to action. Here is the contact information you will need to participate:

What is the proper way to go about hiring employees and contractors to help in an appraisal office? Can you hire a Tier III person out of the box? It is important to not only get the right people on the bus (and the wrong people off the bus), but to put them in the right seats.
