The Coalition of Arizona Appraisers (CoAA) was established as non-profit organization for the purpose of serving and protecting the collective interest of all professional appraisers practicing in the state of Arizona. CoAA's primary focus is to lobby for legislative and regulatory changes to advance the appraisal profession in the State of Arizona, but CoAA will also work hard to increase the public and real estate industry's awareness of the need for quality appraisals and services. 

CoAA's mission is to represent all appraisers in Arizona with a united voice through non-partisan communication with the other appraisal organizations, other business-related organizations, legislative bodies, and government agencies, while fostering the public trust.
