**CALL TO ACTION**

FORMATION OF EDUCATION COMMITTEE

SCPAC is forming an educational committee to meet bi-monthly to discuss educational issues and opportunities facing our profession. We will have select open meetings with educational institutions and providers such as Clemson University, University of South Carolina, McKissock, Appraisal Institute, etc. so that we can be more informed in making recommendations to the SCPAC board regarding appraiser education.

I do not need to tell you how important education is not only for the near impossible barriers to entry to our profession, but also for the continuing education that we all have to complete and how that will be shaped moving forward. This is an important committee and is open to all members.

Please feel free to email me at paul.ryll@oscarmikeappraisalgroup.com with the subject heading of ''SCPAC Education Committee" to join this committee and I will be in touch with the first meeting details.

SCPAC is Proud to Announce the Following

Congratulations to Dale Bailey for being nominated to be the Chairman of the Membership Committee for The Appraisal Foundation Advisory Council for the upcoming year.

As you may know, Ben Atkins was a previous Chairman of this committee. After consulting with Ben and reflecting on the current condition of appraisal organizations nationwide, Dale's hope is to bring a positive outlook to this position and an outstanding reflection for SCPAC that he attend to this duty.

He has accepted the nomination on behalf of SCPAC and will do his best to uphold and promote both organizations to the best of his ability.

Thank you, Dale for your continued support and representation of your profession, colleagues and SCPAC!

Fannie Mae's New Racial Bias

It was probably inevitable that the Biden Administration would enlist housing giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to advance its woke agenda, and now it has. Last week the government-sponsored enterprises released plans to promote housing “equity” that are chock-full of race-based subsidies.

Fannie and Freddie have been under federal conservatorship since Treasury rescued them during the housing meltdown with a $190 billion taxpayer bailout. The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has since regulated their capital, liquidity and underwriting, as well as the mortgages they can acquire. Trump FHFA director Mark Calabria kept the monsters on a tight leash, but there was always a risk that a future Administration would ease up and politicize home lending again. That day has come.

Data doesn't create meaning, people do

In the interview we did with Fannie Mae last issue, Fannie Mae & Your Future, Fannie says that they have determined that big data, when combined with new and powerful algorithms, are "good enough" for certain types of transactions—and are cheaper and faster to boot, which is seemingly what everyone demands these days.
