September Meeting: (4th Tuesday)
Date: Tuesday, September 28, 2021
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Your Device

Our August program on piano appraisal was given by Brian Janey. After some intense appraisal situations, Brian decided to seek out appraisal training and join the American Society of Appraisers. His talk covered a brief overview of some terminology used in professional appraisal practice and ethical stands. He discussed when to refer a client to an appraiser with appropriate affiliations and training when a report needs to be compliant with Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) for the Internal Revenue Service, accounting and legal professions. He also covered the topic of how a piano technician's reputation can be damaged when attempting to assist clients in valuing their pianos. A recording of the talk is available for 30 days:

On Tuesday, September 28 we will have a combined zoom meeting with the San Diego County Chapter. Eric Johnson will be presenting a compact version of a class he gave at the convention in Orlando. He will discuss what makes a truly fine piano, who makes them and how your servicing techniques need to be adapted to get the best from them.
