About our membership classifications: 

Affiliates are professionals in related fields NOT looking for designations.  Affiliates include realtors, bankers, mortgage brokers, and other trades related to the appraiser profession.  This is NOT a designated classification (see Senior Residential or Senior General below), and Affiliates cannot advance to designated classifications.  Affiliates enjoy discounts at all Society continuing education seminars.

Candidates are real estate appraisers seeking professional designations.  This is not a designated classification (see Senior Residential or Senior General below), but Candidates can advance to designated classifications after six months if member is active in attending at least three meetings/seminars and if applicant meets other criteria for designated classifications.  The six-month waiting period can be waived at the discretion of the Society for individuals holding similar designations with other appraiser organizations.  Candidates enjoy discounts at all Society continuing education seminars.  

Senior Residential members are those members experienced in performing primarily one- to four-family appraisals.  This is a designated classification.  These members have the professional endorsement of the Society.  They have demonstrated a level of education and experience that entitles them to use the designation assigned, Senior Residential or CSA-R.  Senior Residential members are listed in our online Find-an-Appraiser List, our Membership Directory, and our Attorney Desk Reference.  Senior Residential members enjoy discounts at all Society continuing education seminars.

Senior General members are those members experienced in performing primarily income-producing property appraisals.  This is a designated classification.  These members have the professional endorsement of the Society.  They have demonstrated a level of education and experience that entitles them to use the designation assigned, Senior General or CSA-G.  Senior General members are listed in our online Find-an-Appraiser List, our Membership Directory, and our Attorney Desk Reference.  Senior General members enjoy discounts at all Society continuing education seminar.
