The Indiana Chapter was chartered in 1940 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 annually, typically in February and late summer/early fall. In order to reach all of the members, both meetings are moved throughout the state and usually consist of a chapter meeting coupled with education, and in the summer a land/farm tour. The organization supports the local community by providing two, $1,000 scholarships to a Purdue University agricultural student.
