Essential Member Benefits
Membership with NACVA includes so many benefits and services that it is a tall order for the Headquarters Staff, Governance Boards, and Editors to communicate it all. Fulfilling our mission to “provide resources to members and to enhance their status, credentials, and esteem in the field of performing valuations, financial forensics, and other related advisory services,” we want to call your attention to these Essential Member Benefits. Some, you may be aware of, others you may not, but we want you to know that we invest a significant amount of time and resources to serve you and the profession at large.

"Because NACVA is a member-driven association, you decide how much to give the organization, but I can tell you, anything you give will be returned to you ten-fold. I have been very active and, as a result, I have had the ability to shape and impact our industry—something I would not necessarily have been able to do otherwise."
— Rebekah Smith, CPA, CVA, MAFF, CFF
Distinguishing NACVA from other professional valuation organizations are the great strides we take to get members involved. This serves two primary purposes: first, Association involvement is a way to help members build their reputations and credibility; second, NACVA’s founders realized that supporting an industry was bigger than they were, and the best way to rise to the challenge was to find and facilitate ways for members to help each other. This is accomplished through member-driven Boards
, State Chapters
, Training Faculty
, Recognition Programs
, and Support Groups
. We encourage you to get involved.
