History of the UAU
The United Appraisers of Utah was formed in 2009 in the wake of the HVCC (home valuation code of conduct) legislation, as appraisers in Utah were striving to understand the new changes that were imposed onto the residential valuation industry, which for many appraisers were challenging.
As the purpose and vision of the UAU began to take shape it quickly became apparent that appraisers in the state of Utah had very little representation. UAU began to give individual appraisers a united voice.
Since 2009 UAU board members, as well as many general members, have attended most every meeting of the Utah Division of Real Estate appraisal board meetings, one of the most important and influential meetings held in Utah to discuss the appraisal industry. The UAU has been given tasks and opportunities to serve and give meaningful input to the Division of Real Estate appraisal board.

The UAU was also invited to join the Utah Association of Appraisers (UAA) and has 2 seats on that board. The UAA is the main lobbying party for appraisers in the state of Utah. As part of this board the UAU has been given further opportunity to represent individual appraisers and give a voice to each member of our group.
The UAU board is involved in current and ongoing changes in our state and on a national level.
