GAAO offers classes, seminars, district meeting and an open door policy to keep our members and all county assessors, appraisers
and interested parties current on modern trends, new legislation, court decisions and help with common problems which all counties
are facing. We have many members active in IAAO, International Association of Assessing Officials. We offer IAAO classes taught by
Mr. Stephen White, which are well attended not only by our state members, but also assessors and appraisers from all over the United
States. We are very proud of our organization and continuously working to improve it.
I am excited about working with
you this year, and I am confident that 2017 will be a great year for GAAO. Thank you for your continued support of the organization
and your dedication to our profession. We are Stronger Working Together! Please feel free to contact me at any time.

WELCOME FROM OUR PRESIDENT:
On behalf of the Georgia Association of Assessing Officials, I would like to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest
in GAAO. We strive to make this website informative and beneficial so that you can easily access the many resources available. The
purpose of this website is to meet the needs of our members and to introduce others to our organization. It is updated regularly
with news events, training schedules, and job listings. GAAO was established in 1948 in my home town of Athens, GA. The goal was
to promote professionalism and to ensure the Ad Valorem taxation was equalized and uniform within the Georgia counties. We now have
approximately 1600 members working together to provide the necessary leadership, training and service needed to provide Georgia with
best taxation administration as possible.
