Mr Kitti Patpongpibul
President of AVA
Greetings to all members of the ASEAN Valuers Association (AVA).
I would like to take this opportunity to thank AVA for allowing me to serve as President for the term 2018-2019 and to be a part of an Association that not only gives knowledge back, but allows relationships to be created within the valuation industry in the region, and beyond.
I am deeply honored to serve as the President of AVA and am enthusiastic about working with the members of this outstanding and diverse Association.
This whole year will become a challenge for me as we continue to develop and improve our knowledge that reflect AVA’s main objectives.
As we are all aware, this Association was formed back in 1981 by Valuers from the different countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), who were motivated to expanding economic and cultural relations among ASEAN countries and serve the public with valuation services. Over the years AVA has expanded it remit from our annual meetings where we exchanged information about ourselves to taking on more and more indepth studies and research into the various aspects of valuation and we believe we are now operating on par with other regional valuation organizations around the world. We look forward to more international interaction with these other global, regional and national valuations organisations,
I am glad to invite all members to the AVA Congress meeting that will be held in October 2019 in Pattaya, Thailand. I hope all of you will join the Congress and visit the main tourists attractions.
I look forward to your continued support and encouragement going forward, and hope that we can work together and move forward as one to take on the new challenges.
President of AVA
