The Appraisers Association and The Appraisal Institute of America are dedicated to enhancing your knowledge and building your community. We are grateful for your membership and support of our conferences, educational programs and special events.

In this year of transition, we were thrilled to hold our Annual Luncheon, National Conference and Art Law Day, both in-person and virtually. This hybrid model provided us the ability to enhance and broaden our reach. This year’s recipients of the Award for Excellence in Art were Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu, founders of Magazzino Italian Art. Nancy and Giorgio sat down in conversation with Adam Weinberg, Director of the Whitney Museum for American Art to talk about their passion for art and of the building of Magazzino. We continued this theme at the Of Value: 2022 National Conference, with Alvin Hall, business man, financial adviser and art collector who shared his “art lust” and his inspirations for collecting.   

On our second day of Of Value: 2022 National Conference and for Art Law Day, keynoters Bruno Vinciguerra, CEO, Bonhams and Charles Stewart, CEO, Sotheby’s shared their vision for their respective auction houses and a view into the trajectory of their businesses. In addition, our panel and connoisseurship speakers provided insights across an array of areas of specializations and welcomed our questions. It was an unprecedented opportunity to learn, share and engage!

It’s with your support that makes this all possible. As we approach the end of the year, please consider contributing to the Appraisal Institute of America to ensure that we continue to bring you relevant programming and to foster the comradery that is the essence of who we are.

Thank you.

Warm Wishes,
