Many AAOM members are public servants employed by government agencies including the Province of Manitoba, and the City of Winnipeg.

Other members are self-employed or work for private firms in fields related to real property appraisal or other land use disciplines.

Serving the Profession

A brilliant assessment community is fostered by promoting assessment equity, professional integrity and continuous learning. AAOM serves to protect the integrity and to enhance the reputa­tion of the assess­ment profes­sion.

Our services include mandatory re-certification, publications, professional networking opportunities, continuing education programs.


AAOM believes that accreditation is the best process to assure our professional colleagues, academic communities, and the public that accredited assessors are competent and meet rigorous professional standards.

Our accreditation requirements address modern standards and aims of mass appraisal and real property assessment. These requirements make sure that our members meet the unique needs, and challenges of mass appraisal.

Continuous Learning And Mandatory Recertification

AAOM facilitates a supportive environment for members to reach their education goals and encourages professional improvement through continuous learning and mandatory recertification.

The association fosters excellence by continuous review of the principles and guidelines that define professional effectiveness in real property assessment.

Professional practice is the responsibility of all members of our association: Executive Board members, committee members, volunteers, staff and the general membership demonstrate their ongoing commitment to the core values of integrity, honesty, fairness, openness, respect and responsibility.
