Upstate NY Chapter "G. Richard Kelley Memorial Award"
(Formerly known as the Presidents' Award)
The Chapter Board of Directors changed the President's Award to the "G. Richard Kelley Memorial Award" in Dick Kelley's honor.
The Upstate New York Chapter of the Appraisal Institute annually considers awarding the G. Richard Kelley Memorial Award (Presidents' Award) to a designated member, candidate for designation, affiliate, or others associated with our chapter who make a significant contribution to the chapter, the appraisal profession, or their local community.
The award committee comprises the three immediate past chapter presidents who vote on the award winner, and a committee chair who does not vote.
