The Nebraska Chapter was chartered in 1962 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 three educational meeting each year in February, March and July. 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. Tours are typical for their summer meeting. The Chapter is also active in their community and offers scholarships to University of Nebraska – Lincoln students who have an interest in rural property management and appraisal. They also support students attending Summer Education Week. In addition, they recognize members with their Service to the Chapter award each year.
