JOIN THE AAA: MEMBERSHIP
If you are transitioning from a related field, e.g., curator, dealer, auction specialist, collector, attorney, etc., and have a basic level (less than five years) of appraisal or connoisseurship and marketplace experience, we recommend the Appraisal Studies Program at NYU/SPCS, the premier appraisal training program in the country. Earning your certificate from NYU/SCPS includes completing six (6) required theory and methodology courses and four (4) 10-session connoisseurship and marketplace electives. All those who have completed the program are given two years credit towards our five-year appraisal experience requirement for membership.
Once you have completed the certificate, we invite you to become an Associate of the AAA for a period of three years, during which time you will develop your appraisal portfolio and have access to specially-designed programs for Associates. At the end of the three-year period, we invite you to apply to become a Member of the AAA. We work closely with each applicant, assigning a specialist “mentor” to assist you with every step of the process. Click hear to read more about becoming a Member through the "NYU Track."
