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 Appraisal Review Accreditation WorkshopBusiness appraisal review is a critical component of every business appraiser's practice. No firm can risk being caught unaware of quality assurance problems. Customer demands, potential penalties, sanctions, and loss of business are real possibilities in this era of heightened focus on professional responsibility. Every business appraisal engagement must be reviewed. Whether this review takes place in house or externally, or even by the business appraiser, it is essential to know the fundamentals and procedures of the review process. Understanding the elements of review can go a long way to making the appraisal more effective in the first place. Understanding these elements enables the reviewer to ensure the quality and acceptability of the appraisal. Attendance at the Business Appraisal Review Accreditation Workshop provides the business appraiser with all of these tools and enables the appraiser to attain the Accredited in Business Appraisal Review (ABAR) credential.
