Welcome to the WAAO web page!

Being a part of the assessment profession for over thirty years, there have been many changes, especially the past five years. I am encouraged by the number of new members to this organization. While we have lost many years of industry- experience through retirement, the new membership brings us an almost limitless amount of opportunities!

We need to take this opportunity to embrace the changes in technology, along with the infusion of young talent to take this organization to a new level. Along with that is the importance of communication with the nearly 30 new members. I have reached out to many League participants by sending Linked-in invitations. I will continue to reach out to WAAO members by inviting existing members as well as new members to get involved.  We need to tap into this group of talented professionals to maintain a high level of commitment to each other.

Based on the course content from the September League of Wisconsin Municipalities conference, it is clear that we need to keep the membership in the loop with all the industry changes. Specifically the legislative and litigation updates. We must remain diligent with our partners like the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, the Wisconsin Towns Association, and the Department of Revenue in keeping the Property Assessment Manual current and upgrading the Provide Assessment Data (PAD) capabilities.

I encourage you to read the October 2019 edition of Municipality Magazine-“Cities Successfully Defend Against Dark Store Challenges-You can Too”. The article addresses several key issues including several recent victories in the Dark Store battle zone. It also addresses best practices for defending an assessment against Dark Store based arguments.

I look forward to serve as your President this year!

Allan Land
