Minnesota Chapter

The Minnesota Chapter was chartered in 1979 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 a robust winter meeting consisting of continuing education for farm managers and appraisers, as well as a chapter business meeting and an auction to support scholarships.  They also hold a summer tour, typically in July, incorporating education and a tour of agricultural related sites.  They also produce a Land Value Survey and a Land Rent survey each year, which they provide to members in January.  The Minnesota Chapter also strives to support students and those that are new to the profession, by providing scholarships to the Agricultural Economics department at the University of Minnesota.
