The Appraisal Practices Board is described on the Appraisal Foundation web site as follows:
The APB was officially formed by The Appraisal Foundation Board of Trustees on July 1, 2010. The APB has been charged with the responsibility of identifying and issuing opinions on Recognized Valuation Methods and Techniques, which may apply to all disciplines within the appraisal profession. The APB will offer voluntary guidance in topic areas which appraisers and users of appraisal services feel are the most pressing.
Ernie is also on the RAC board of directors and a never-ending resource of new ideas to RAC members and the industry in his quest to help appraisers become more efficient, making his election to the APB a perfect fit.
