Annual Conference

The NCRAAO Annual Conference provides an opportunity to learn new skills, network, review new hardware and software, and share experiences that will enhance appraisal practices. Our next conference will be held in LaCrosse, Wisconsin on June 21st through June 24th. Past Conferences have been held throughout the north central region. The first NCRAAO Annual Conference was held in Wisconsin in 1976.

Member States

NCRAAO provides an avenue for education and professional development. The organization consists of eleven states: North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin. The states are homogeneous as all are part of the north central prairie section of the United States of America and have multiple rural jurisdictions.

Education Development

NCRAAO is an association that was originally developed in order to give assessors a regional means of networking together as well as providing education at the annual conferences.


The education is geared toward issues that affect the region such as grain elevators, wind farms, ethanol plants, issues affecting small jurisdiction and etc.


NCRAAO has developed this website to provide assessment-related information to its members and the public.
