TALCB Mentors

Volunteering to become a Mentor for the Board is a way for experienced appraisers to serve the public interest and contribute to the appraisal profession by working one-on-one with appraisers required to complete remedial training and education. Mentors agree to serve for a two-year period and are a key component of the agency's process to ensure appraiser competency.

Education Committee

The members of the Education Committee are appointed annually by the TALCB Chair.  This committee advises the Board on education-related matters and recommends changes to the Board's rules, policies and procedures relating to those matters.
