The AAA Accredited Municipal Assessor of Alberta (AMAA) designation is recognized worldwide as a leading property assessment accreditation. Only the Alberta Assessors' Association can award the AMAA designation and, as a regulated profession, membership is mandatory for practicing Assessors. With an AMAA designation, Alberta Assessors can work anywhere in the province and the accreditation is recognized in other regulated provinces (currently, Saskatchewan and Ontario)
The Alberta Assessors' Association (AAA) holds the key to success in obtaining your accreditation in property tax assessment!
Membership falls into one of these five categories:
Accredited Municipal Assessor of Alberta (AMAA)
A regulated category for any person who is a practicing assessor and holds the AMAA designation.
This is an entry level, regulated membership category for those wishing to pursue the AMAA designation. Any person who is a practicing assessor is 18 years of age or older, and is sponsored by an Accredited Member is eligible for this category. Candidate members will have eight years in which to complete their accreditation requirements.
A qualifying student member must be a person engaged full time in post secondary educational studies and cannot be employed full time in the appraisal/assessment industry. An applicant in this unregulated category may be asked to provide proof of full-time student status.
Any person who has demonstrated an interest in the practice of assessment and has been sponsored by an Accredited Member. Members in this category are unregulated.
Municipal Property Tax Administrator
A new category of membership recognizing the symbiotic relationship between Tax and Assessment personnel or departments in municipal government. Municipal Property Tax Administrators are professionals who provide services and or administrative support in municipal property tax or related functions and policy.
A formerly accredited member who is no longer active in the practice of assessment but wishes to maintain a membership in the Association and who wishes to use the "AMAA Retired" designation.

Jobs, jobs and more jobs…many members are retiring in the next five to ten years. If you’re willing to commit to the time required to meet accreditation requirements, it can lead you to steady, well-paid employment in a major city, municipality, or as a private assessment contractor.
