I Need Help with My Reports.
No matter what specialized service you provide, it usually comes down to the presentation of a report. This is where the “rubber meets the road,” so to speak, and knowing that you have done an excellent job will certainly give you peace of mind, but more importantly, impress upon your client that you are a true professional. This is a reachable goal, and NACVA has the programs and people in place to assure that every report submitted by every member is a great report.
Business Valuation Report Peer Review—Case Analysis by Webinar (CAW)
Peer review of valuation reports is offered through our Case Analysis by Webinar (CAW) sessions and provides authors of valuation reports with perspectives from like-mined valuators. Valuation reports submitted for use in a CAW are reviewed and discussed in a 5-10 person round-table format with particular emphasis centered on whether or not the critical elements of the valuation report are sufficiently addressed and the report follows professional standards. The round-table will also identify strengths and weaknesses of the report and rate overall readability, credibility, and persuasiveness.

Report Writing: Review and Analysis
It is incumbent upon the valuator to fully understand the quality standards by which his or her valuation report will be judged; from a users perspective this is what matters most. Report Writing: Review and Analysis addresses every aspect of drafting a report in adherence to professional standards, but just as importantly, shows you how to piece together a coherent, logical, persuasive document that will impress your clients.
Litigation Report Writing Workshop
In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn effective approaches to writing an expert damages report for use in a litigation matter. The workshop will include a review of the report writing requirements set forth in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and reporting requirements for other jurisdictions. This workshop will also focus on drafting reports that integrate powerful content with supporting evidence and exhibits, all done under professional standards, that are ready to be put to the test and scrutiny of a court. Attendees will be asked (not required) to submit a redacted expert report to the instructor prior to the date of the class. All arrangements will be made with NACVA Headquarters for this submission.
Industry Standards and Ethics
Developments within the professional organizations over the last many years are moving toward more harmonization of industry standards. In this webinar, senior representatives in the valuation industry, many of whom are at the heart of this harmonization, will discuss the standards impacting the profession, including NACVA, IBA, ASA, AICPA, and USPAP.
