If former (non accredited) members – who have let their membership lapse – wish to rejoin the Association – and want credit for the lapsed time – they would have to buy back all the lapsed time which would include the membership fee plus the administration fee for each year they had let lapse. (See Note below)

 


 

Former Accredited members:

Former Accredited members of the Association who have let their membership lapse – and wish to rejoin the Association, and regain their accreditation , would firstly have to buy back all the lapsed time which would include t he membership fee plus the administration fee for each year they had let lapse.


 

Note : If the lapse in membership for both Non Accredited and Former Accredited members is more than five years , the former member would only be required to pay an amount equal to the total of membership fees plus administration fees that were in place during the five years prior to their rejoining the Association.


If the lapse in Membership of a Former Accredited Member was for A TOTAL OF FIVE YEARS OR LESS, and the former accredited member wishes to regain their accreditation, after buying back the lapsed time, they would have to:

  1. Successfully complete the Law of Assessment in Manitoba Course (if they had not successfully completed the Course within the three years prior to the year they wish to apply for the return of their A.A.M. designation); AND

  2. Attend an A.A.O.M. Conference prior to applying for the return of their A.A.M. designation; AND

  3. Successfully pass an Oral and/or Written Interview (if they had not passed an oral or written interview within the five years prior to the year they wish to apply for the return of their A.A.M. designation.)

 


If the lapse in membership was for MORE THAN FIVE YEARS , but NOT MORE THAN TEN YEARS and the Former Accredited Member wishes to regain their accreditation, they would have to:

  1. Successfully complete the Law of Assessment in Manitoba Course (if they had not taken the Course sometime within the three years prior to the year they wish to apply for the return of their A.A.M. designation); AND

  2. Attend an A.A.O.M. Conference prior to applying for the return of their A.A.M. designation; AND

  3. Successfully pass an Oral and/or Written Interview if they had not passed said Interview within the five years prior to their applying for the return of their A.A.M. designation; AND

  4. Successfully complete a Demonstration Appraisal Report of an Income Producing Property or equivalent (Equivalencies would have to be checked out by the Education Board Chair) if a Demonstration Report had not been completed within the ten years prior to their applying for the return of their A.A.M. designation; AND

  5. Have at least 10 years experience in mass appraisal; 

    Note: The purchased lapsed time can be included in the experience time only if the member was working in the assessment field during the lapsed time. AND
  6. Including the lapsed time which was bought back, been a member of the A.A.O.M. for at least five years.

 

Once the above criteria had been met, the member would have to fill out a Request for the Return of their A.A.M. designation (available from the Admin. Office), and the request would have to be approved by the Executive Council.

If a former member does not wish to buy back the lapsed time – they would be considered a new member and would only be given credit for tenure purposes from the date they rejoin the Association. The former member would also not be able to join at the prorated fee as this is for “first time members” only, as stipulated in the Constitution.
