Property Assessments to Property Information
Since its inception in 1974, BC Assessment has earned a reputation as one of the world's leaders in property assessment. Mastering property assessments has meant the collection and analysis of extensive property data. What's the value of this data? How can it be utilized beyond BC Assessment and shared with property owners, governments, realtors and researchers? Making the shift from property assessment to property information involves an evolution of work, people, partnerships and relationships. It requires a carefully prepared pathway for organizational cultural change and the resilience to overcome challenges and resistance along the way. In short, it requires a fundamental change in the way things are done and how the organization views itself. Join Connie Fair, President & CEO of BC Assessment, as she describes BC Assessment's transformation from producer of valued property assessments to provider of valuable property information.
