November has arrived, the World Series is done, NFL Football is halfway over, and the extended Holiday season is just around the corner. Before you know it, Thanksgiving Day, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter solstice, Christmas and New Year’s will be upon us, affording each of us at least one tradition to celebrate.
The Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (TALCB) is hiring a new Commissioner. Our long-serving Commissioner, Douglas Oldmixon, is retiring at the end of March 2020. The Commissioner serves as the agency leader for both TALCB and for the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), and is responsible for organizational culture and day-to-day operations of the agency. This includes managing staff and agency resources, overseeing the annual budget, and developing and implementing a strategic plan in collaboration with TREC and TALCB policymakers appointed by the Governor.
The Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board takes pride in providing high quality education and licensing services, and effective consumer protection across Texas. In recent months, there have been significant issues with the quality of customer service we are providing to consumers and to our license holders. I take personal responsibility for addressing these issues. I want you to know that I – along with the entire Texas Licencing and Certification Board staff – recognize your frustrations, and we are committed to solving these issues.
