Innovating, Streamlining, and Executing Strategies to Help Our Members!

By Brien K. Jones, Chief Operations Officer and Executive Vice President

As NACVA nears its 25-year anniversary in 2016, the headquarters staff in Salt Lake City has been busy. We’ve been diligently working to position NACVA for continued growth by designing, streamlining, and innovating programs that will contribute to the success of our members. Here are a few of the initiatives that are currently available and ones that will be launched this year.

Practice Support Headquarters
Answers. Resources. Solutions.

  • What are the recommended steps to moving forward in an industry or area of specialty?
  • What are the best practices and advice for building my referral network and generating more revenue for my practice?
  • What resources and education can help build my technical confidence?

Member Profile Survey
We want to better serve you. Help us help you!

We have launched an ongoing campaign to get to know you better through an extensive member survey. The information gleaned from these surveys will help NACVA customize the information it sends to you, develop future training and certification programs, create programs and resources support your success, and shape NACVA’s ongoing strategic marketing efforts to position CVAs, MAFFs, and ABARs as the credible, reliable, and highly recognized experts they are. Complete all sections of your Member Profile Survey to receive 20,000 Pacesetter Awards valued at $200.


CPE On-Demand
300+ recorded webinars at your fingertips!

A pioneer in online education since 2007, NACVA continues to produce nearly 300 live webinars a year. NACVA records many of its live courses, which are then archived in the CPE On-Demand portal where you can search topics by keyword, presenter, and date. These recorded webinars cover the full spectrum of the business valuation and financial forensic profession and qualify for CPE credit.


2015 Region Conferences
Bringing the industry’s masters and emerging leaders closer to you.

NACVA and the CTI’s Annual Consultants’ Conference, typically held each June, is well-known for delivering the profession’s latest updates, theories, methodologies, applications, and approaches, in addition to organizing exceptional networking events. In 2015 we are taking the show on the road, producing regionalized conferences to make the exceptional education and networking events more accessible to the membership. These events will also be broadcast online, so you can view them from your office or home, and also competitively priced, so you can view and participate in the sessions with your firm and colleagues. Mark your calendars and save the dates for these specialized regional conferences. Be on the lookout for our 2015 Call for Presentations if you would be interested in submitting a presentation proposal for one or more of these conferences:
