Foundation for Appraisal Education Seminar - Oct 4 & 5

The 7th annual Foundation for Appraisal Education Seminar is scheduled for October 4 & 5 at New Auction Company in New Orleans.

The Foundation always hosts great seminars with interesting speakers and great venues.

The mission of the foundation is "to raise funds and award scholarships to those seeking to improve their knowledge in the field of personal property appraising. As a nonprofit organization independent of any professional appraisal societies, FAE welcomes all appraisers to become members and/or apply for scholarships. Whether you are new to the field or a seasoned professional, we believe that the pursuit of appraisal education is a worthy endeavor to support."

The FAE and their scholarships are "to advance the education, capabilities and skills of personal property appraisers through scholarships. By attending classes through ISA, AAA, ASA, Winterthur or The Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts, etc. and attending the FAE annual seminar, recipients gain access to presentations by leading experts in their fields benefiting from a diverse network of industry participants."

The Foundation for Appraisal Education reports on the seminar
The 2019 Foundation for Appraisal Education Annual Educational Seminar will take place at Neal Auction Company at their Magazine Street auction gallery location in the beautiful historic Garden District of New Orleans. The theme of 300 Years of Southern Style will cover topics from French wallpaper trends in early Southern American homes, to the trends in Southern Art from Clementine Hunter to Blue Dog to the Contemporary Art Scene. Seminar will also feature a talk on best practices to strengthen your business and the importance of your engagement agreements.

Educational Seminar
As part of its dedication to the advancement of appraisal education, the FAE produces an annual 2-day educational seminar. Every year, we select a destination city and a diverse group of presenters on topics that provide both antiques, furnishings & decorative arts and fine art appraisers with learning opportunities and professional development credits. These seminars are open to ISA, AAA and ASA appraisers, as well as individuals interested in the field of topics presented.

We hope to see you in New Orleans, October 4-5, 2019!
