California Chapter

The California Chapter was chartered in 1949 to empower rural property professionals by providing education and promoting ethical and professional standards. The Chapter promotes the professions of farm management, agricultural consulting, and rural appraisal by holding meetings for the exchange of ideas, conducting education, and holding its members to a Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Practice. 

The Chapter prides itself on being an innovator in education, seminars, and resources for western agricultural professionals.  The California Chapter holds an annual Outlook Agribusiness Conference and publishes the highly acclaimed Trends in Agricultural Land & Lease Values, on an annual basis.

The Mission of the California Chapter: Empowering agricultural property professionals with education and expertise to provide premier valuation, management and consulting services.
