Lysander and Van Buren’s assessor, Theresa Golden, has been admitted to membership in the Institute of Assessing Officers (IAO) and was awarded the designation of “Professional Assessor.”

The designation represents the highest professional assessor achievement one can obtain in New York State through the state educational system and the New York State Assessors' Association educational program.

“This designation demonstrates a high level of professionalism and proficiency, which indicates [Theresa] knows what she is doing, which will be beneficial to [both Van Buren and Lysander] in the day-to-day operations of the assessor’s offices,” said Claude Sykes, Van Buren Supervisor. “Receiving this designation demonstrates she enjoys her job and she takes her job seriously enough that she strives to improve and refine her skills by undertaking this program.”

In order to attain this distinction, Golden had to qualify through experience, successful completion of a comprehensive written examination and subscription to the code of ethics of the institute.

The Institute of Assessing Officers is a society of professional assessors chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York and is sponsored by the New York State Assessors' Association. At the present time there are 251 members. Members of the Institute have the exclusive right to use the letters IAO after their name.
