The Colorado Chapter was chartered in 1963 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 hosts two meetings each year in spring and fall. The Chapter emphasizes providing education for their members to meet professional designation requirements and provides presentations by informed people on topics of concern to members such as wind seminars, advanced conservation easements and appraising lands in transition. The Chapter is deeply committed to promoting quality rural appraisal education and understands the importance of recruiting talented individuals into the profession. The Chapter typically provides scholarships to support agricultural students at Northeast Community College in Sterling and Colorado State University in Fort Collins. They also support students attending Summer Education and are regular contributors to the ASFMRA Education Foundation.
