Kansas City Chapter - American Society of Appraisers

The American Society of Appraisers (the “ASA”) is a multi-discipline non-profit international organization of professional appraisers. The mission of the ASA is to foster the public trust of our members and the appraisal profession through compliance with the highest levels of ethical and professional standards. The Kansas City Chapter includes the Kansas City Metropolitan area, the States of Kansas and Western Missouri, including the cities of Topeka, Salina, Wichita, Hays, El Dorado in Kansas and Joplin, Springfield and St. Joseph in Missouri.

Our members provide appraisal reports for planning, insurance declarations, gift and estate tax returns, employee benefit plans, merger and acquisitions, litigation support, expert witness testifying, and tax assessment purposes.

The ASA accredited members are designated as specialists in specific types of assets including: real estate, art, collectables, stained glass, aircraft, machinery, equipment, intangible assets, and business valuation. ASA accredited members have successfully completed a comprehensive series of examinations, provided a juried report and meet experience requirements in their fields of practice. Designations include the Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) and Accredited Member (AM). Members who are working toward these designations are Candidate members. Members are required to be educated in and comply with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

We look forward to the opportunity to be of service. Look on our contact page for an ASA accredited member that specializes in your specific appraisal need, or contact our officers for additional information.
