The professionals of the Saint Lucie County Property Appraiser’s Office were successful in achieving the coveted Certificate of Excellence in Assessment Administration (CEAA), conferred by the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO). This distinction has only been awarded to 34 other jurisdictions out of the more than 13,000 internationally.
The IAAO is a nonprofit, educational, and research association that is comprised of government assessment officials and others interested in the administration of the property tax.
The Certificate of Excellence in Assessment Administration (CEAA) recognizes jurisdictions that utilize best appraisal and assessment practices in their offices. The CEAA is a rigorous, self-conducted evaluation of specific and accepted appraisal standards defined by the IAAO. It validates the proficiency of the professionals and is a testament to the customers that expect trusted results.
“The Certificate of Excellence is the result of best practices and advanced training. It is a reflection of the excellence our office strives for daily, and is a confirmation to our neighbors of the professionalism of our team” remarked Property Appraiser Michelle Franklin.
