President’s Message

November 2017

Fellow Appraisers,

The annual San Diego Real Estate Golf Team Championship was held on Wednesday, October 4 at the Admiral Baker Golf Course. Over seventy players competed, and the net proceeds from the tournament will help fund the San Diego Chapter’s scholarship programs. We would like to sincerely thank this year’s sponsors (a full list is on the Golf Tournament page on the Chapter’s website) and to Andre Desjardins, MAI, AI-GRS, Susan Merrick, SRA, Nikki Desjardins, Judith Desjardins, and Patti Kreutzer.

In August, the National Board of Directors accepted the resignation of Frederick Grubbe after more than 10 years of service as CEO. The Board appointed AI 2017 President Jim Amorin, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS as the organization’s Acting CEO. Mr. Amorin will continue as President through his one-year term, which ends December 31. AI will immediately begin a search for a new CEO.

The next Regional meeting will be held in Lake Tahoe beginning October 20. The event will include Regions 1, 2 and 7. With the Governance Structure Project Team recommendations on everyone’s minds, it should be an interesting and productive event. If you have not submitted your thoughts on the Project Team’s recommendations, I urge you to do so by contacting Scott Brody, who can be reached at, or use the link below.


Trevor C. Hubbard, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS
San Diego Chapter President
