It is my pleasure and honor, as president of the Georgia Association of Assessing Officials, to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in GAAO. We strive to make this website informative and user friendly so that you can easily access the many resources available. qPublic, our website host, and Mechell Salter, our website coordinator, do a phenomenal job of keeping the site updated with the latest information. We appreciate their work very much. The purpose of the website is to meet the needs of our membership. Please do not hesitate to contact Mechell or any member of the Executive Board if you have questions, concerns, suggestions, or additional information that would be of interest to our members.
I am looking forward to serving as GAAO president for 2013. My association with GAAO began in 2000 when I became a member and has only become stronger and more rewarding, both professionally and personally. I encourage you, if you are not already doing so, to get involved in the organization. Joining a committee, running for an Executive Board position, attending the seminars and summer conference are just a few of the opportunities available to our members. Your association with GAAO will help you to bring honor to our profession as you do your work everyday. John Scott, our Executive Director, believes and professes that "GAAO is
stronger working together" and I certainly believe that, as well.
Our motto is "Education, Leadership, and Cooperation". Those qualities combined with dedication, hard work, and confidence in our mission will help us face and conquer the challenges ahead of us. I am excited about working with you as your president and am confident that we will have a great year in GAAO in 2013.
Thank you for your continued support of the organization and your dedication to our profession.
Please don't hesitate to contact me at any time!
Stronger Working Together!
