This years annual ISA (International Society of Appraisers) conference took place in Louisville Kentucky and included an evening at the Churchill Downs Kentucky Derby Museum. As a professional appraisers of art and antiques we are constantly seeking out education on subject matter to inform our research. Our membership in the ISA actually requires us to show continued education and experience in appropriate related areas. This and our adherence to professional ethics, and the USPAP standard are what set Adams Appraisal above the average dealer.
This year’s conference was a great weekend of education on various subjects for appraisers like Audobon prints, Persian rugs, and Bourbon and a chance to network with subject matter experts and experienced professionals from all over the US and Canada. We even managed to sample a little Bourbon.
