History of the Rhode Island Chapter of the Appraisal Institute
In 1953, Rhode Island based real estate appraisers began as a chapter of the Society of Real Estate Appraisers and retired member William E. Coyle, Jr., MAI, SRA is in possession of that original Society charter.  The Rhode Island Chapter of the Appraisal Institute was established on January 1, 1991 when the Society of Real Estate Appraisers and the American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers merged.  The Appraisal Institute formally presented the charter in 1993 to Thomas S. Andolfo, MAI, SRA who happened to be chapter president at that time.  As way of tradition, the Rhode Island Charter was then passed-on each year to the in-coming chapter president until it was retired upon the merging of the Rhode Island and Massachusetts Chapters on January 1, 2013.  The  1993 charter was re-presented to Mr. Andolfo by the Rhode Island Chapter’s last president, Gregory J. Accetta, MAI, MRA, on December 12, 2012.
