Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Does your organization conduct appraisals?

A. We do not perform any appraisals. We provide accreditation to candidates who meet our requirements to become appraisers for Haitian art, and qualify them to receive our HAEAS' Accredited Appraiser (HAA) status. Individuals with the HAA designation are fully qualified by HAEAS to appraise Haitian art.

Q. I need to have Haitian art in my collection appraised. Can you refer me to someone?

Since we are a new organization, we do not yet have any HAEAS-qualified appraisers. However, it is highly recommended that you obtain the services of a qualified appraiser through one of the appraisal societies, i.e., International Society of Appraisers, Appraisers Association of America, or the American Society of Appraisers.
