VaCAP Launches Consumer Protection Campaign
VaCAP is excited to launch a Consumer Protection Campaign! For months we prepped, we discussed, we negotiated, we wrote, we edited, wrote some more, edited some more… finally, we recorded.
We have three 60 second consumer protection announcements airing on WRVA 1140 News Radio starting on Monday April 29th. The three consumer protection announcements will air randomly throughout the day for two weeks. WRVA 1140 News Radio live streams through Radio.com and iHeartRadio so anyone can tune in and listen. The consumer protection announcements will refer listeners to VaCAP’s website for more information where we have added a consumer page. This page has articles directly relating to consumer protection and consumer education.

In addition to the consumer protection announcements:
VaCAP President Pat Turner will be a guest on The Home Show with Richard McKann, Saturday May 4th from 7:30 to 8:00 AM Eastern time. The discussion will focus mainly on consumer protection, however listeners can call in with questions, so the conversation could go anywhere. This too can be lived streamed through Radio.com and iHeartRadio.
This is just the beginning of greater things to come!
Oh wow. Remarkable, and excellent. Really great job. Thank you.
Great job VACAP! Thanks for doing this
Great job VACAP. Thank you
Minnesota Appraisers? Would any of you like to talk about a MN coalition?
it would be great to have a short video to link or share on our business websites and FB pages.
Great work VaCAP. Hopefully, all state coalitions will adopt the same idea. Perhaps VaCap can show them how?
Tell them free to use or copy the exact language, but cost to issue the clips as radio ads is on them? It’s not necessarily proprietary but rather a really comprehensive capture of what we talk about in amazingly brief clips.
Pepsi challenge to anyone whom can get an amc to adopt these advertisements. Amc’s claim they’re partners to the appraiser, well, why don’t they promote similar messages if those claims are really true?
It’s so simple, why didn’t anyone think of this before? We’re in the business of consumer protection with something around 80,000 appraisers nationally. We’ve had no voice to advocate for everyday appraisers for far too long. Industry heads like use us as disposable resources. We can only get sold down the river so many times before something has to give. If they won’t advocate for us and traditional process, we’ll do that ourselves. Brilliant!
Create a radio ad fund we can all chip into, sub the ending of the message as brought to you by your local real estate appraiser community, send them out on a national scale. Cheers.
Positive step. Thank you.
Per Baggins, “Create a radio ad fund we can all chip into, sub the ending of the message as brought to you by your local real estate appraiser community, send them out on a national scale.”
I would donate to this fund and I know many others would too! Let’s make it happen!
