The Results: 2012 ICAP Seminar Survey

Earlier this month, ICAP conducted a survey to gain feedback from their membership; the objective was to help understanding the most relevant issues facing our membership and to use that data as the basis for our 2012 seminar planning.

Highlights of Summary Findings

  • 104 responses were received from our membership.
  • 22% of the respondents indicated a desire to have Appraisal Compliance as the topic they would most like to see at this year’s summer seminars
  • 12% chose to write in a topic

Survey results were received from respondents to ICAP’s Blog, (, while most respondents were members of ICAP some nonmembers expressed interest in voting.  Repeat voting was not allowed and the answers and order were randomized.  Click the following image for a detailed summary of the results:

In summary, this poll provided the Board of Directors with accurate and reliable data which will help us plan informative and relevant seminars for our members.
