As stated in its Constitution, the objectives of the Kansas County Appraiser’s Association are to improve the standards of appraisal practice; to provide a clearing house for the collection and distribution of useful information relating to appraisal practice; to educate the taxpaying public on the true nature and importance of the work performed by appraisal officers; and to engage in research and publish the results of studies; to elevate the standards of personnel requirements in appraisal offices; to elevate the other public and private agencies interested in providing tax administration; and in every proper way to promote justice and equity in the distribution of the tax burden.  The KCAA also functions to assist in the training, education, certification, and designation of Kansas ad valorem appraisal personnel.  The KCAA has established a Code of Ethics for its members.
