USPAP and the “Cobra Effect”

February 13 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us for our February course titled “USPAP and the Cobra Effect” and our Annual Meeting where we will present the NCAREA 2023 annual budget, “State of the Organization”, and voting for 2023 Board Members. Please join the meeting by 6:45 in order to participate.

Presenter:  Jeremy Bagott, MAI, AI-GRS

Jeremy Bagott, an appraiser based in Ventura, California, is the author of “Dispatches from the Cosmic Cobra Breeding Farm,” as well as three other books. He writes about land use, agriculture, finance and public policy.

Course Summary:

In a clarion call to Colorado appraisers, author and appraiser Jeremy Bagott, MAI, AI-GRS, takes attendees into the world of copyrighted codes and how they are increasingly incorporated into state and federal law and made enforceable. He will look at a tiny Washington, D.C., 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has managed to have its copyrighted code of conduct for real property appraisers – the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice – enshrined in federal and state law. The two-hour course will include a discussion of the differences between statutes and regulations, a look at Colorado’s administrative code and how incorporation by reference of outside codes and standards are dealt with in the Centennial State. Along the way, such esoteric concepts as the “Sick Chicken Law” of the 1930s,  the Nondelegation Doctrine, the Protz Decision and the “Cobra Effect” will be explained and made comprehensible to attendees.
