COALITION OF APPRAISERS IN NEVADA
Founding member of CAN,
2009 President & 2010 Treasurer
January 12, 1945 - June 14, 2010
Pam's involvement in the real estate valuation industry in the State of Nevada spanned almost 25 years. She was a member of the Appraisal Institute for 23 years, and was awarded the SRA designation in 2007.
Pam was recently awarded the Appraisal Institute's 'Volunteer of Distinction' for Region VII. To quote the 2010 Appraisal Institute President, Leslie P. Sellers, MAI, SRA, "Pamela Kinkade is an example of the outstanding individuals who belong to the Appraisal Institute."
In addition, Pam served as a member of the Real Estate Division BPO Task Force and formerly served on the Nevada Commission of Appraisers of Real Estate.
Pam's service to the appraisal profession included mentoring associate appraisers and working tirelessly on draft bills of appraiser independence legislation as a founding member of the Coalition of Appraisers in Nevada, of which she was also the immediate past president.
Those of us who came to know Pam through our involvement with CAN are greatly saddened by this loss, though we know that keeping Pam's passion for our organization in our hearts is the best way we can honor her memory. Her many contributions to the real estate and appraisal community will be greatly missed.
On behalf of the CAN Board of Directors, we hope you will join us in keeping Pam, her family, and her associates in your thoughts and prayers.

1958 - 2014
It wasn't until J.J.'s passing earlier in 2014 that it become apparent it would be difficult to find another lobbyist like him. J.J. was CANs lobbyist since its inception, where he had the ability to get our thoughts and opinions heard in Carson City. Our search continues to find another individual that is both understanding of our Mission Statement and passionate about our profession.
There aren't enough words to express "our" appreciation for J.J.'s efforts, hard work and how he helped make our Coalition one that is respected nationwide.
